Celebrate the economic contribution of disabled employees around the world by joining the #PurpleLightUp 24-hour Global Broadcast

About this Event

#PurpleLightUp, led by PurpleSpace, is the powerful global movement that celebrates and draws attention to the economic contribution of disabled employees around the world, which we hold on 3rd December as a mark of respect to the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

This year #PurpleLightUp takes on an even greater significance as we launch the world’s first #PurpleLightUp 24-hour Global Broadcast. From sunrise in Australia, across six continents, to sunset in New York, we are bringing together CEOs, senior champions, network / ERG leaders and disabled employees to connect, share their stories and feel the power of change.

The Global Broadcast will commence at 06:00 HKT & CST & SGT/ 03:30 IST/ 01:00 MSK & AST on 3rd December for 24 hours. Registering enables you to join at any point during the live 24 hours - regardless of which continent link you have used to register - as well as watch all content ‘On Demand’ both on the day and for 10 days following the event.

The ‘purple spotlight’ will be turned on Asia on 3rd December between 10:00 – 15:00 CST & SGT / 05:00 – 10:00 MSK & AST / 07:30 – 12:30 IST, where we will be showcasing the amazing strides that organisations, associations and individuals around the world are making in terms of disability inclusion and in building disability confidence from the inside out. Working closely with our Strategic Partners, Continent Partners and local associations and Ambassadors across the world, including the Bangladesh Business & Disability Network (BBDN), EnAble India, Qaderoon, the UN’s ILO and the Valuable 500, we will bring you some of the world’s most innovative leaders and the opportunity to connect with your peers around the globe.
