WPP named in Bloomberg’s 2019 gender-equality index

The gender-equality index identifies companies committed to advancing women in the workplace

WPP

WPP has been named an industry leader in the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) which recognises companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.

Bloomberg’s 2019 index includes 230 firms from 10 sectors, headquartered across 36 countries and regions. Assessing information against a globally-established threshold, the GEI looks at how companies promote gender equality across four separate areas: company statistics, policies, community engagement and products and services.

WPP is the only company among its peers to be included in the list.

Mark Read, CEO of WPP, said, “As we continue to build a culture at WPP that is inclusive, collaborative and diverse in our talent and in the work we create, we’re proud to be recognised in the Gender-Equality Index as a leader in our industry.”

Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the US 30% Club, said, “WPP’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.”
