Transport for Wales will be lighting up their HQ this Thursday with purple lighting to represent Wales in a global broadcast to celebrate disability inclusion.
The global movement, #PurpleLightUp, celebrates the contribution made by 386m disabled employees in the world.
This year, the broadcast will start in Australia before moving onto Asia, Africa and then Europe, where TfW staff will be included.
James Price, Transport for Wales CEO said: “We are extremely proud to be supporting #PurpleLightUp and recognising the contribution made by disabled employees, not just here in Wales, but around the world.
“TfW is a fully inclusive organisation, where all colleagues are treated equally with respect and diversity is celebrated.
“It’s will be great to see our new HQ in Pontypridd lit up purple for this global celebration and to be part of the 24-hour global broadcast representing Wales.”
Julian John, Manager Director of Delsion, an innovative, inclusion led People and Development Consultancy firm added: “#PurpleLightUp is a global campaign that celebrates the huge contribution that disabled people make to the economy and in the workplace.
“Transport for Wales is a leading organisation in Wales and they are fully embracing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, and have taken some big steps showing their level of commitment in developing their workplace culture. They are lighting up their HQ in Pontypridd and taking part in the 24-hour global broadcast, an opportunity to celebrate with the rest of the world.”
