A Special Celebration of Pride

As Auckland gets ready for the Pride Festival, three Britomart corporate heavyweights have come together to celebrate diversity.

Celebrating #youbeingyou

#youbeingyou is an initiative about celebrating what makes you who you are. This month, for Auckland Pride Festival, Westpac, Southern Cross Health Society and EY have joined forces to celebrate diversity and inclusion and inspire all New Zealanders, no matter their age, role, gender, sexuality or race, with the confidence to be themselves.

Be a part of the visual display!

Throughout February, Westpac will be collating photos under the hashtag #youbeingyou. Then, for the week of February 20-26, they will project these photos as a visual display up in lights in Britomart. The display will also be visible online so no matter where you are, you can check it out and it can be viewed around the globe.
