A Year in Review: How We Built a Better World Through Inclusion

Take a look back at all the ways we helped to make the world a more inclusive place ❤️

WHAT. A. YEAR. FOR. PRIDE. From parades and 5K races to private shopping events – 2023 was a remarkable year of uplifting and empowering the LGBTQ+ community alongside our AEO associates.

Led by the incredible efforts of our Real Pride Network, we focused on connection and what it means to serve those in need, support one another and celebrate what makes us real. 

Throughout the year, associates from our Corporate, DC and Store populations showed up in a big way to promote inclusion, equality and a sense of belonging in communities across the country. 

We are incredibly proud of our networks and connections for their dedication to fostering an environment where everyone can bring their whole, authentic selves to work each day. Our company and culture are built on the foundation of being inclusive and welcoming, and we will continue to do our part to ensure our associates, customers and AEO community always feel respected and recognized. 

Where we celebrated Pride in 2023! We can’t wait to see where we go in 2024.

Be sure to follow along throughout December and January as we highlight some of the amazing ways our associates, customers and community joined us in building a better world.
