Wednesday night the sky should be clear and ideal for the Bank of America Plaza and One AT&T Plaza/Whitacre Tower to glow in purple to commemorate March as Best Buddies Month.
The lighting will also signal the launch of Dallas Best Buddies’ “Give Light to Inclusion” campaign to “encourage Dallas-area businesses and communities to take steps toward inclusive practices this March.”
According to Best Buddies North Texas Job Development Manager Lyndsey Astorga, “People with disabilities make phenomenal employees. With lower rates of absenteeism and less employee turnover, individuals with IDD often make some of the best and most dedicated workers.”
Even if you aren’t in a hiring position, you can sign up for the Best Buddies North Texas Friendship Walk on Saturday, April 30.
