The ClearPoint team brought out their inner pink and donned pink T-shirts to show support against bullying on Pink Shirt Day, 23 May 2014. ClearPoint House was decked out in pink balloons, polka dots, crepe pompoms and feather boas and the team gathered for morning tea to celebrate diversity and make a stand against bullying. We also ran a Facebook competition for the ‘best pink shirt selfie’, and had entries from our team members based at client sites, as well as our Auckland and Wellington offices.

Morning tea was – you guessed it – pink-themed, with a scrumptious spread of raspberry buns, strawberry wafer slices, raspberry cheesecake, multi-pink M&Ms, pink-creme oreo cookies, and raspberry jelly!

ClearPoint Managing Director Phil Pietersen spoke about the origin of Pink Shirt Day in Nova Scotia in 2007 and why, as a company that values people, we’re standing together with organisations around the world to support this campaign. At ClearPoint, we believe people – our clients and team members – are at the core of who we are.  We encourage diversity in the company and are committed to creating a culture where everyone feels respected.  In the hope of continuing the spirit of Pink Shirt Day all year round, we encourage everyone when faced with a bullying situation to always Speak Up, Stand Together, and Stop Bullying!
