Northern Trust Recognized for Commitment to Advancement of Women in Workplace
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 16, 2019--Northern Trust has been recognized as one of a select group of companies for the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which distinguishes companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.
The 2019 Gender-Equality Index highlights firms that are trailblazers in their commitment to transparency in workplace gender reporting. This is the second consecutive year that Northern Trust has been included on the Index.
“We applaud Northern Trust and other firms tracked by the index for their action to measure gender equality through the Bloomberg GEI framework,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “Northern Trust’s GEI inclusion is a strong indicator to its employees, investors and industry peers alike that it is leading by example to advance ongoing efforts for a truly inclusive workplace.”
For inclusion in the index, Northern Trust was recognized for how gender equality is promoted across four areas: company statistics, policies, community engagement, and products and services. Companies that score above a globally-established threshold have achieved best-in-class policies, statistics and transparency.
