PURPLE FRIDAY – ONLINE – BREAKFAST SESSION
To kick off Purple Friday 2021 strongly, we would like to cordially invite you to a special breakfast session, organised by Academia@Workplace Pride and Student Pride.
Purple Friday is a day on which pupils and students can show their solidarity with LGBTIQ+ people by wearing the colour purple at school. In the Netherlands, the day has been held on the second Friday of December every year since 2010. Purple Friday was inspired by Spirit Day in the United States, which was first held in 2010 as an expression against bullying of LGBTIQ+ youth.
Purple Friday is traditionally celebrated at schools but over the last couple of years, we’ve seen that higher education and corporate workplaces are embracing this celebration of solidarity with the LGBTIQ+ community.
In this webinar, we’ll explore what Purple Friday is all about and also why universities and companies are putting Purple Friday on their agendas.
We look forward to seeing you online on Purple Friday
