Australia: Corrs supports rainbow young people with Wear it Purple day
Last Updated: 5 September 2016

Employees at Australia's leading independent law firm, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, filled their offices across the country with purple on Friday, with a strong message of support for Australia's rainbow youth.

Wear it Purple is a student run, not-for-profit organisation that exists to support young people who identify as sexuality and/or gender diverse (i.e. rainbow).

Wear it Purple seeks to raise awareness about the issues faced by these young people and the need to eradicate bullying based on sexuality and gender diversity.

Annette Hughes, Corrs Partner and Diversity Council Chair, said: "Wear it Purple believes that everyone has the right to be proud of who they are and this is in-line with Corrs' commitment to creating an environment where people are free to bring their full identity to the workplace. We are determined to drive diversity, equality and inclusion in the legal profession, and this includes sending out our message of support to the young and old. We were thrilled to see so many Corrs people decked out in purple on August 26."

Last year more than 121 workplaces, 193 schools, and 29 tertiary institutions celebrated Wear it Purple Day.
