Brunswick Named Among America’s Best Employers for Women by Forbes


Brunswick has been named by Forbes and Statista to the 2021 America’s Best Employers for Women list for the second year running.

Only 300 companies made the final list, from the thousands in consideration. The company also ranked number two overall on the list’s engineering and manufacturing category.

“We are honored to be named to the list of America’s Best Employers for Women for a second consecutive year, especially as this award reflects feedback from employees throughout the enterprise,” Brenna Preisser, executive vice president and president, business acceleration and chief people and strategy officer, said in a statement. “As the leader in the recreational boating industry, we are dedicated to promoting greater diversity on the water by creating a workplace that values different experiences and reflects unique perspectives.”

America’s Best Employers for Women are selected by an independent survey of 75,000 U.S. employees (including 30,000 women) at companies with at least 1,000 employed in the U.S.

According to Brunswick, it is committed to leading in the effort to engage and advance women in the marine marketplace and to encourage more diverse boating participation.
