    Making Your Workplace Better - Identifying and Ending Workplace Bullying with Linda Crockett and Animah Kosai

    Making Your Workplace Better - Identifying and Ending Workplace Bullying with Linda Crockett and Animah Kosai

    We are releasing this special episode in partnership with Speak Up at Work and in recognition of Workplace Bullying Awareness week. How does a dive into WPB fit in with a podcast on Healthy Masculinity? Well, one in three people are bullied at work and, as we’ll hear, male targets of bullying often experience the most significant impacts… up to and including suicide and premature death. The prevalence of domination culture in most workplaces, in combination with the isolating expectations of “Man Box” masculinity makes WPB a potent toxin for men, whether we are perpetrators, enablers, bystanders or targets.

    To help us untangle all these roles, dig into the root causes of WPB, and to propose some system solutions and individual actions, Mark and I are joined by Linda Crocket and Animah Kosai, two people who’ve dedicated their lives to empowering others to prevent and recover from harassment and bullying at work.

    Linda Crockett is a clinical social worker and activist who is the founder of the Canadian Institute of Workplace Bullying and Harassment Resource Centre Inc., (2010), the first and only full-service resource centre in Canada specific to psychological harassment.  Linda provides workplace management services to employers and employees, from all professions and industries.

    Linda started the Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 10 yrs ago, and began inviting countries around the world to join in. She believes this is a worldwide issue and we need a worldwide solution. This year, every day between October 17-23rd, depending on where you are, you will  have access to podcasts, TV interviews, Radio Interviews, Blogs, Articles, online discussions, posters, t-shirts and so much more. This movement IS making a difference and as a result, positive changes are happening. For more information on this week, see the links in our shownotes.

    Animah Kosai is a British barrister who speaks, writes and advises on Speaking Up in Organisations, specifically to break the silence on wrongdoing.

    She founded Speak Up At Work to diagnose the Speak Up Culture in companies and assess their response to reports on wrongdoing, harassment, unsafe and unethical practices. This helps companies address emerging risks early enough before they get too big and become public.

    In this episode, you’ll hear me confront my own complicity in the face of a workplace bully and how that complicity affected me. Listen to the full episode to learn how we can stop taking workplace culture for granted and find ways to make the workplace better for all of us.

He started Fathering Together to provide a community for connection and education for fathers everywhere.

    Calling Men In - Interrupting Harassment and Rape Culture

    Calling Men In - Interrupting Harassment and Rape Culture

    In this episode, Mark and I explore the roots of domination culture and how men’s response to that culture can lead to acts of violence and rape.

    Just a heads up… although the targets of male violence deserve attention, humanization, and support, in this conversation we do center the discussion on men - the men who allow or perpetuate violence against women, even if we think we don’t. We unpack men’s common reactions to stories of rape and harassment, our overt or covert role in rape culture, our resistance to taking action and how men can help each other to overcome that resistance.

    In digging into the roots of the violence and the resistance to change, Mark and I do express empathy and solidarity with men trapped in domination culture AND we don’t let ourselves of other men off the hook. This is a fine line to walk but that's the line that needs to be navigated… men holding ourselves accountable and responsible while calling each other IN to allyship and activism with those who are victims of male violence.

    Listen to the full episode to learn how men can push back against the code of silence that turns us into complicit bystanders and how we can become better allies, while actually creating a better, more connected life for ourselves.
