The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index provides investors with valuable reference data on gender equality, measuring internal company statistics, employee policies, gender-conscious product offerings and external community engagement. Created in consultation with third-party experts, the index recognizes firms’ commitment to disclosure and best-in-class policies and practices.
Launched in 2016, the index originally focused on the financial services industry, expanding to the sector-neutral Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index in 2018.

The Gender-Equality Index has been highlighted by firm participants, investors, thought leaders, and publications like Fortune, The Atlantic and Fast Company, for providing data transparency and standardization, a forum for companies to collectively discuss challenges internally and among their peers, and a method to better understand the performance imperative for gender-equal policies and practices.
Bloomberg will continue to refresh and rebalance the BFGEI in addition to the new sector-neutral GEI on an annual basis.
