COLUMBUS, Ohio , May 11, 2023 / 3BL Media / - Today Bath & Body Works announces its inclusion on Forbes’ list of America's Best Employers for Diversity.

The publication partnered with market research firm Statista to create their sixth annual list. To determine the rankings, Statista surveyed more than 45,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Participants were asked to anonymously rate their organizations based on criteria such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and LGBTQ+ equality, as well as general diversity.

Respondents belonging to underrepresented groups were also asked to recommend businesses other than their own. In addition, each company’s diversity-related best practices—such as the presence of employee resource groups, the publication of diversity data and the percentage of women in board and executive roles—were reviewed and incorporated into the rankings. The top 500 companies made the final list.

“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the greatest workplaces in America for diversity,” says Kelie Charles , Bath & Body Works Chief Diversity Officer. “At Bath & Body Works, we believe a culture where everyone feels a sense of belonging, has a chance to be heard and is valued and treated with respect makes us a smarter, stronger brand. Diversity, equity and inclusion make us stronger, and we strive every day to infuse this core value into our inclusive culture, equitable business processes and support of diverse communities.”

In addition to making Forbes’ list of America's Best Employers for Diversity, Bath & Body Works recently has been recognized in several other ways including:

  • America’s Best Workplaces for Women by Newsweek
  • America’s Greatest Workplaces for LGBTQ+ individuals by Newsweek
  • Most Trustworthy Companies in America by Newsweek
  • Diversity in Business Award by Columbus Business First
