Twitter is where inclusion lives; where movements form, information is shared and change happens, all in real time. The world has seen this with conversations around #BlackLivesMatter, #SheInspiresMe, #LoveIsLove, #OrlandoStrong, #BlackWomenDidThat, and many more. And we are focused on that spirit of inclusion in our workplace too.
Spirit Day is an annual anti-bullying campaign developed by GLAAD that inspires millions of people to “go purple” in support of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) youth. Each year, people around the world use the #SpiritDay hashtag on Twitter to show support and to take a stand against the bullying that disproportionately affects LGBTQ youth.
For our first partnership with @sydneymardigras, we transformed the #BlueRoom into the #RainbowRoom to celebrate Mardi Gras week and hosted a range of live performances and Q&As in celebration of LGBTI pride.
Working alongside our partners in the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building (@CDPB_NI) and the Washington Ireland Program (@WIPLive), we asked what campaigns need to be created and elevated across the region.
