This month Macy’s celebrated Diwali with our colleagues across the country. Embracing our diverse teams, we brought together friends and family from our local communities to join in on the energetic and colorful celebration with wonderful performances, food, activities, and more!
“Diwali is my favorite Indian festival. While it represents good over evil, it is also a time for family and friends to come together and celebrate life. At Macy’s we do more than just talk about diversity – we actually live it by celebrating diverse cultures and traditions in our stores, with our customers and in everything we do as Macy’s colleagues.”
See below to learn more about the festive tradition and how colleagues came together to celebrate.
