When did you join Wear it Purple?
I joined the board in December 2018, although I have been actively involved for the past couple of years as I national lead for Globe within Deloitte and sit on our D&I council, and we created our Globe month of activities around Wear it Purple Day.
Position with Wear it Purple?
General Board Member
Why did you join Wear it Purple?
When I first started working 22 years ago I was bullied at work by my immediate boss because I was gay, I vowed I would never allow anyone else to go through what I went through. So when I heard about the great work that Wear it Purple were doing, I immediately ensured that I and Deloitte supported it.
Do you identify in the community or support as an ally?
I am very proudly a member of the community! I have been with my partner, Jason, for 12 years and we have a beautiful daughter Sophie, a dog called Hamish and a cat called Angus.
