Why...

Why do people say "work colleague"? What other kinds of colleague are there? I never hear people refer to a [something else] colleague, but they do talk about "someone I'm running an event with" or "someone else on the committee" or similar. Why, then, do so many people tend to qualify the word "colleague" in what amounts to nothing but tautology?
