PurpleLightUp – Take part

Over 1 billion people in the world have some form of disability, that's 1 in 7. It can affect any of us at any time in our lives. In a growing global movement, over 160 countries have signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. But there’s still more to be done. True inclusion comes from a world that accepts all human difference.

#PurpleLightUp, powered by PurpleSpace, is a global mark of solidarity. For those who take part, it is their way of signalling one of three things.

#one - Your employer's CEO has signed up to the #Valuable500 movement and / or has agreed to put disability on the board agenda.

#two - Your organisation wants to improve the lived experience of disabled employees and learn directly from its own people via networks all connected through the PurpleSpace community.

#three - You are an ally of our movement and you are supporting our campaign 365 days a year and our commitment to build disability confidence from the inside out.
