Sky Tower shines bright in support of inclusion, equality

In celebration of the New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards and Pink Shirt Day this Friday, SKYCITY is proud to be lighting the Sky Tower in rainbow colours.

From Thursday 16th to Friday 17th May, the top of the Sky Tower will flash dynamic rainbow colours, whilst the base will shine a luminous pink.

SKYCITY is delighted to host and sponsor the inaugural Rainbow Excellence Awards, and has also been named a finalist in training and development category. SKYCITY was one of the first companies to receive a Rainbow Tick accreditation, with the awards recognising workplace leadership, innovation, best practice and collaboration.

Also on Friday, SKYCITY employees across New Zealand will be dressed in pink to celebrate Pink Shirt Day to speak up, stand together and stop bullying and harassment in the workplace. Whilst the SKYCITY team in Adelaide will be celebrating International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia by wearing colours of the rainbow.

Claire Walker, SKYCITY Group General Manager, Human Resources says she is thrilled to continue to support to these important social causes, using the iconic Sky Tower.

“The Sky Tower is one of New Zealand’s most recognisable landmarks, and using this to support these important initiatives sends out a clear message on how SKYCITY supports diversity, inclusion and equality.”

SKYCITY lights the Sky Tower for charities or community initiatives that we support financially, to mark national holidays, milestones or other celebrations or events, or as a symbol of respect or solidarity.
