The Workplace Bullying Institute and the New Workplace Institute are collaborating on an important new initiative, the creation of the U.S. Academy on Workplace Bullying, Mobbing, and Abuse.
The Academy will support and promote the multi-disciplinary work of its Fellows, a group of leading and emerging educators, researchers, practitioners, writers, and advocates who are dedicated to understanding, preventing, stopping, and responding to workplace bullying and mobbing and related forms of interpersonal mistreatment.
Although we recognize the universality of these destructive behaviors, we are creating this network to focus on the unique challenges posed by American employee relations, mental health, and legal systems.
This initiative has been in the works for over a year, and I'm delighted to see it taking shape.
The Academy's website, to which more will be added in the months and years to come, is http://workplacebullyingacademy.com/ - and the initial list of Fellows is given at the same websiite.
