Employee Resource Groups
After becoming a Macy’s associate, the diversity message continues through annual workshops, seminars and computer-based awareness training. Our numerous Diversity Councils and Employee Resource Groups provide a solid platform for ensuring we create an inclusive and supportive work environment to attract and retain top talent.
