Sparking the #PurpleLightUp
In 2017 I asked a question on Twitter.
Inspired by the way that the rainbow flag has created real change as it rallies an increasingly vibrant LGBT movement, I asked if the time was now right for disabled employee networks and resource groups to join forces in the lead up to the UN International Day of Persons with Disability on 3rd December each year, and for employers and our allies to celebrate our economic contribution.
The #PurpleLightUp was born. And our global movement of networks and resource group leaders, their employers and allies and our amazing group of Ambassadors.
