Terry Lundgren accepts the Women’s Forum of New York’s Muriel F.
Siebert Leadership Award

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE:M) today was presented with the prestigious Muriel F.
Siebert Leadership Award for extraordinary diversity of its board of
directors by the Women’s Forum of New York. The award was accepted by
Terry J. Lundgren, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc.

An audience of more than 650 corporate executives, public company
directors and opinion leaders gathered in Manhattan to honor Macy’s,
Inc. and those 27 other companies among the Fortune 1000 and S&P 500
with boards of directors comprised of more than 40 percent women.

Macy’s, Inc. is considered to have among the strongest and most diverse
boards in Corporate America. Currently, six of Macy’s directors are
women (43 percent of the total board of 14 members). Among Macy’s
directors are four members who are ethnic minorities (Black, Hispanic
and Asian-American).

“Macy’s is a company that demonstrates that having directors with a
range of experiences and perspectives leads to better decisions and
governance for all of our stakeholders,” said Joyce M. Roché, an
independent director who chairs the Macy’s board’s Nominating and
Corporate Governance Committee, in introducing Lundgren for the award.
“Terry Lundgren has been a strong leader whose commitment and leadership
have made Macy’s a model that inspires other companies.”

“We are very proud of the strength of experience and knowledge that each
of our directors brings to the board table. They help our business to
reflect our very diverse marketplace of customers, of whom about 70
percent are women,” Lundgren said. “Our directors constantly challenge
us to be a better company with a long-term view for serving emerging
customer needs and creating shareholder value. Diversity at every level
is a strength of Macy’s, Inc., and we are proud of the guidance we
receive from these extraordinary individuals. Through this award today,
all public companies are encouraged to accelerate progress in making
boards more diverse.”

The Muriel F. Siebert Award was named for the first woman (in 1967) to
own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. Siebert was also the first
woman to head one of the NYSE member companies.
