Harmony Day has been held every year since 1999 on March 21, coinciding with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.
Seasons, and our care partner Envigor, employ people from around 20 different nationalities, so Harmony Day is a chance to celebrate our staff while learning about their customs, languages and cuisine.
Our residents are also from a range of cultural backgrounds so it’s a chance to celebrate them too and learn from their unique stories.
Seasons communities across South East Queensland will be hosting events for employees and residents, with people encouraged to wear orange for the day.
As the colour chosen to represent Harmony Day, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect.
