December 3, 2020 | 0 Comments

In recognition of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities today [Dec 3], HSBC Bermuda joined in with the global ‘PurpleLightUp’ initiative, with a section of their Front Street building illuminated in purple in “recognition of the economic contribution that employees with disabilities bring to organizations across the globe” and to show “appreciation of valued disabled colleagues.”

The Hamilton building is one of many buildings around the world lighting up in purple today, joining iconic landmarks like Wembley Stadium in England and the One World Trade Center in New York.

The bank also said that today they ”engaged in a number of activities aimed at not only marking this important occasion but also in increasing awareness amongst all employees, of how best to support those colleagues challenged with invisible and/or visible disabilities, so they and those who care for them, can be their best at work.”

The island also celebrated the International Day of People with Disabilities with a motorcade earlier today, with the Bermuda Hospitals Board organizing a celebratory motorcade which traveled from Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute, while Windreach also held a virtual conference in recognition of the day.

According to the United Nations website, “the annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.”
