Lock Up Your Boss 2019

The yearly round up of Canberra bosses is back!


The Lock Up Your Boss initiative is running virtually for the third year after overwhelming success in 2017 and 2018.

From 3 April, bosses from across ACT will be locked up with the keys thrown away. There’s only one way out: raise enough cash for bail. It’s not as bad as it sounds, though. Bosses will be put behind exclusively virtual bars. And it’s all for a good cause. *No boss needs to leave the office, it’s all done virtually!*

For you:

Ever had a bad day at work? Boss not leaving you alone? Feel like you need some space? We can help you out – Lock Up Your Boss in 2019 and get them to raise bail money to be let out, all for a great cause – supporting Lifeline Canberra’s 13 11 14 crisis support line!

For your company:

Participating in Lock Up Your Boss would generate awareness of your brand as well as publicity. It can also be a lot of fun for your workplace, and create opportunities to talk about workplace mental health.

For the community:

Saving lives is a community endeavour, and you can be a part of that charge. By building mental health awareness in the community and creating conversations about mental health, locking yourself up could make you somebody’s hero.

Not a boss?

You can still participate! The same rules apply. You can sign up if you’re a mentor, coach, teacher, work colleague, mum, dad etc. Think your boss is up for the challenge or have someone in mind? Click here to find out more and to nominate someone.
