Don't forget to celebrate Pink Shirt Day on February 26
Submitted by Sadaf Haghdan, Occupational Health and Safety Coordinator Occupational Health and Safety
Wear something pink to celebrate Pink Shirt Day and show support for working together to prevent bullying!
Pink Shirt Day creates a perfect opportunity for us to shine a light on our respect actions and our desire to foster environments where our people thrive. The simple act of wearing something pink can start conversations – conversations can be a big step towards healing and helping.
Respect is a core value at PHC and is an important characteristic of how we interact with our patients, residents, and one another. When we keep respect top of mind, it helps us all feel safe, function better, and be more engaged in the work we do. On February 26, 2020, let’s wear our respect for one another, our patients, residents and loved ones, on our sleeves (or wrists, or headbands, or sunglasses, or whatever pink piece of apparel you choose!).
Wearing pink on February 26th sends a strong message that we care.

Pink Shirt Day began with two Nova Scotia high school students, who decided to take a stand against bullying in their own school and now it is celebrated across our Province. Find out more here: http://pinkshirtday.ca/
