Take a Stand: Stop Bullying

March 17, 6-8 p.m., BAS State Farm Room
National expert on workplace bullying Dr. Gary Namie will speak on March 17, 2011, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the State Farm Room in the Business and Aerospace Building on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University. Dr. Namie taught the nation's first university course on workplace bullying. He was the expert witness in the nation's first bullying trial in Indiana with the verdict upheld by the state Supreme Court.

Dr. Namie and his wife, Dr. Ruth Namie, are the most recognized individuals associated with bullying in the U.S., due in large part to the eight public websites devoted to education about bullying for individuals, lawmakers, unions, and employers. Their work has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, NPR, and in print.

Dr. Namie directs a national network of state coordinators [the Healthy Workplace Campaign], acting as citizen lobbyists, who work to pass into law the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill.

This event, free and open to the public, sponsored by the Distinguished Speaker Series and the Jennings A. Jones College of Business. For more information, contact Jackie Gilbert, 615-898-5418. More information regarding bullying, civil discourse, and respectful interaction can be found at OrganizedforEfficiency.com.
