Happy Diwali to all those celebrating this weekend

November 10, 2023
We want to wish a very happy Diwali to everyone who may be celebrating this weekend, Sunday 12th November.

At Cemex, we aim to celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion. We want all of our employees to be able to bring their true selves to work and we recognise the part that faith and religion play in the lives of so many. Our objective is to be respectful to the beliefs of all individuals, including those without a faith. We want to create a wider awareness and understanding of all faiths and religious beliefs in order to become a truly inclusive employer.

Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The celebrations and activities include good food, fireworks, special candles and lamps – used to signify the festival of light. Whilst the Diwali story may be interpreted slightly differently based upon where you live – the common theme no matter where people celebrate is of light over darkness.

We’ve created some links to a variety of Diwali related topics; from decorations, music and food to children’s books, mobile apps and educational resources. We hope there’s something for everyone whether you’re celebrating Diwali or just want to learn a little more.
