The Woolworths Proud Crowd celebrates at Fair Day

Woolworths Group made its Sydney Mardi Gras debut at Fair Day, where we joined more than 200 other exhibitors with our Proud Crowd Rainbow Slushie Bar. Fair Day is a free family-friendly party and picnic which caters to a crowd of approximately 70,000.

The Woolworths Proud Crowd Slushie Bar offered Fair Day attendees rainbow fruit slushies and team members from the Woolworths LGBTI Proud Network were on site to talk about how diversity and inclusivity is celebrated across Woolworths Group businesses.

Woolworths Group is one of Australia’s largest employers, and importance is placed on our team bringing their whole selves to work, and for our teams to reflect the communities we serve. 

In 2017, Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci made a statement in support of marriage equality, and more than 2,500 stores across Woolworths Group participated in 'Wear It Purple Day'. Woolworths became an official sponsor of the Sydney Mardi Gras Festival in 2018, which is the 40th anniversary of the iconic event.
