#PurpleLightUp: Making virtual events more accessible

Debbie Babbage, Head of Operations & Business Development at Chew Events, talks about making virtual events more accessible for those with disabilities and how they produced the 24-hour global broadcast for PurpleSpace.

#PurpleLightUp is a global movement that celebrates and draws attention to the economic contribution of the 386million disabled employees around the world. And it is PurpleSpace that leads this movement. Since 2017, #PurpleLightUp has been driving momentum for disability inclusion across hundreds of organisations, reaching thousands of employees in different ways. This includes lighting up iconic buildings purple, holding events, developing workplace policies for disabled employees and sparking conversations about disability inclusion worldwide.

In 2020, #PurpleLightUp was bigger than ever before, thanks to the 24-hour global broadcast with webinars, interviews, panel discussions and more.
