Announced today, it is the third year running that IPL has been included in the annual index of public companies committed to transparency in gender data reporting.
IPL Managing Director & CEO Jeanne Johns said: “Earning our place on the Bloomberg’s 2021 Gender Equality Index is a strong endorsement of our commitment to equality across our global business.
“Diversity is our strength and we know that creating a more inclusive workplace, where opportunities are available to all, not only makes us a better place to work but contributes to our company’s growth.
“Since were selected in the GEI in 2019, we have continued to make progress on our commitment to increase the diversity of our workforce – including our gender balance - so that we better reflect the communities in which we operate.
“Last financial year women made up 18% of our global workforce, an improvement on the year before and we are working hard to continue to improve,” Ms Johns said.
The Bloomberg Gender Equality Index (GEI) includes 380 companies across 11 sectors headquartered in 44 countries and regions.
The index measures a company’s data disclosure and looks at a company’s performance across five key areas: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies and pro-women brand.
