COLUMBUS, Ohio, Mar. 6, 2023 – Bath & Body Works today announced that it was named a Diversity First Top 50 Company by the Diversity Research Institute. The award recognizes organizations that demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Diversity Research Institute (DRI) recognizes Fortune 500 employers following extensive research and analysis into the racial and gender diversity of executive and board membership.

Bolstering this recognition, Bath & Body Works also recently joined the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, with CEO Gina Boswell as a signatory, to strengthen the company’s commitment to advancing DEI. The coalition is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance DEI in the workplace. It brings together more than 2,400 CEOs who have pledged to cultivate environments that support open dialogue on complex DEI conversations, share DEI best practices and more.

“This recognition is a powerful example of what we can achieve when creating a culture where everyone truly belongs,” says Bath & Body Works CEO Gina Boswell. “At Bath & Body Works, our purpose goes beyond selling products. We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion make us stronger, and it’s woven into all facets of our business.”
