Sydney, 17 October 2018
While shopping in a Woolworths store in Western Sydney recently, I came across “Happy Diwali” posters and stickers there.
As a person from Indian heritage, I am happy to see these posters. These posters signify the inclusion of, and welcome to, diverse cultures. It’s multiculturalism in action.
There are about 650,000+ people of Indian heritage in Australia and these numbers are especially concentrated in Western suburbs of major cities like Sydney and Melbourne. From business point of view, it makes all the sense to be inclusive and welcoming of diversity and cultures.
Good job, Woolworths!
