For the third-consecutive year, global design firm Stantec was named to the 2022 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a performance ranking of public companies committed to transparent gender-data reporting and advancing women’s equality in the workplace. Based on five separate areas of data disclosure, the index is comprised of 418 companies spanning 45 countries in 11 different business sectors. Recently, Stantec was the first company globally to link its sustainability-linked loan to Bloomberg Gender Equality Index scores.
“Our continued progress on the Gender-Equality Index isn’t just a complement to our focus on creating a balanced workplace – it’s a genuine scorecard for our company that drives cultural, operational, and financial programs,” said Asifa Samji, Stantec Chief Human Resources Officer. “Every organization needs accountability in pursuing equity for its team members, and we’re grateful for both the recognition and responsibility we enjoy for being on the index for a third consecutive year.”
Companies included in the 2022 GEI voluntarily released their gender equality-related data in the following key areas: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. Organizations scoring above a globally established threshold are named to the GEI and results are published on the Bloomberg Terminal.
