The disability conversation is changing and the movement moving, and for the first time in 2022 we held a number of events globally on Tuesday 1st November. We celebrated the day in London, Dubai, Minneapolis and Pakistan. 

London – Piccadilly Lights lit up Purple for the 5th year in a row showing our production, highlighting the importance of the disabled customer experience. We were joined by representatives from our 28 Sector Partners, who then enjoyed a networking breakfast to celebrate and share ideas and insights. Canary Wharf also turned Purple in the evening in celebration, which the Purple Tuesday team attended along with Canary Wharf employees.
