The Purple Bombers aim to assist the Essendon Football Club and the AFL in being leaders of change by creating a safe environment for LGBTIQ supporters and players, by encouraging and promoting diversity, tolerance, and acceptance within the wider football community. They are committed to removing homophobia from football and are striving towards the ultimate goals of establishing a pride round and assisting other AFL clubs to establish their own LGBTIQ supporter groups.
Sodexo’s involvement is in support of the Purple Bombers, aligning with our client’s values as well as Sodexo’s own LGBT inclusion efforts through the PRIDE network.
