How Bloomberg is Driving Gender Equality and Helping Investors
It is clear from reading the headlines and checking the research that, in spite of significant efforts, progress toward gender equality in corporate America has been very slow. What can be done to move the needle? Bloomberg is betting that viewing the issue through a data-driven lens has the potential to drive change, increase shareholder value and improve the economic well-being of women and communities around the globe. It is for this reason that, earlier this year, Bloomberg launched its Financial Services Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a reference index that measures gender equality in the financial services industry.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Angela Sun, Bloomberg’s Head of Strategy and Corporate Development – and principal architect of the GEI – on the day that Bloomberg released its survey for the 2017 GEI. Join us as we learn more about the motivation behind the index and why Ms. Sun is bullish about the GEI’s significance on Wall Street and beyond.
