For the ninth year in a row, SHC participated in the 2015 Chicago Pride Parade with this year’s theme “Welcome Home.” “It was an honor for our business unit to support and sponsor this year’s 46th Annual Chicago Pride Parade,” said Arun Arora, SVP and President of Home Services and Home Appliances. “Homes in America are becoming more diverse every day and it was important to our team to showcase our dedication to all families as our float made its way through the parade route.”
It was just a year ago when the Illinois Marriage Equality Law was enacted, which served as a precursor to this year’s Supreme Court ruling on Friday, June 26, making marriage legal for all same-sex couples across the United States. As a company that represents a true cross section of America, Sears Holdings supports all of our members no matter who they are or who they love.
Dozens of SHC associates, friends and family members marched in the parade or cheered from the crowd. I want to thank Arun and his team, the Sears Holdings’ PRIDE Associate Resource Group and all those who participated in the walk for once again representing the diversity and inclusiveness of SHC.
