Copart is proud to host an inclusive work environment that accommodates employees from all backgrounds and celebrates the customs they hold dear to them. Diwali was no exception.
On Thursday Nov. 8, 2018, employees at both our Dallas headquarters and our Copart India Technology Center (CITC) celebrated Diwali with traditional Indian cuisine, outfits and dance. Employees from our Dallas IT team even put together a video presentation where their children told us about the holiday and what they love about it.
Diwali, or The Festival of Lights, takes place every autumn in Ashwin, the seventh month of the Hindu lunar calendar and symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. Some say it signifies the beginning of the new year.
