Celebrations and Holidays

While "heroes and holidays" and "celebratory events" are not all there is when it comes to multicultural education, it would be an oversimplification to say that these activities have no importance in diversity and inclusion work either. With this in mind, we hope that the information you find here will deepen your understanding of multicultural events, celebrations, and holidays, and also inspire you to learn more about the field of diversity and inclusion as a whole. On this page, we invite you to learn why multicultural events, celebrations, and holidays are not just about food and fun, but important aspects of a broad array of peoples’ histories and cultures.
