Williams-Sonoma, Inc. is one of 483 companies across 45 countries and regions to join the 2023 Bloomberg GEI, which measures gender equality of companies across five pillars: leadership & talent pipeline, equal pay & gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand. Companies included on this year’s index scored at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect disclosure and the achievement or adoption of best-in-class statistics and policies.

“Investing in equality continues to be a priority at all levels and in all aspects of our business,” said Laura Alber, President and CEO of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. “We are proud to be one of the only home retailers included in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the third year in a row, and we are hopeful the efforts recognized by this distinction inspire the retail industry to join us in our commitment to equality.”

“Congratulations to the companies that are included in the 2023 GEI. We continue to see an increase in both interest and membership globally, reflecting a shared goal of transparency in gender-related metrics”

Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club
