The Workshop at Macy’s, the retail industry’s longest running retail development program for underrepresented brands, provides up-and-coming businesses with the tools, knowledge and access to resources to drive their enterprises to the next level, achieve business objectives and sustain growth. Designed by a consortium of experts from Macy’s and Babson College, the nation’s leading business school for entrepreneurship, the business development curriculum is created for diverse and women-owned retail businesses poised to succeed on a larger level. Since 2011, The Workshop at Macy’s has helped support and grow more than 175 small businesses.
“This year, The Workshop at Macy’s returns with several enhancements to continue evolving the program as a business accelerator for the participants,” said Michelle Wang – Macy’s vice president of retail diversity strategy. “The enhancements, including business grants, will help accelerate the participants’ success, and better support growth opportunities for these underrepresented businesses.”
