Auckland DHB stands proud in pink

Last Friday Auckland DHB turned pink to support Pink Shirt Day to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying.

Pink Shirt Day is a global initiative that celebrates diversity and creates environments where all people can feel safe, valued and respected.

Auckland DHB is proud to join the movement in creating a positive and inclusive workplace.

Staff donned pink to show their support, and many visited the information stand and selfie-booth at Auckland City Hospital where Chief Executive Ailsa Claire joined volunteers in handing out stickers.

“I was delighted to see so many people standing together in pink on Pink Shirt Day. The day is an opportunity for us to show our support that we will not tolerate bullying, harassment and discrimination here,” she says.

In 2017, Auckland DHB launched the Speak Up | Kaua ē patu wairua programme which put in place processes and ways for our people to feel safe and speak up if they experience or witness unacceptable behaviour.
