PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) today announced that it has been included in the 2020 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a global index of public companies committed to supporting gender equality through policy development, representation, and transparency. Radian is one of 325 companies across 50 industries included on the list for the second consecutive year.
“Radian is once again honored to be a part of this distinguished group that includes some of the world’s leading corporations,” said Chief Executive Officer Rick Thornberry. “Supporting and advancing gender equality is an important priority for our company and testifies to our commitment to promoting an inclusive and diverse workplace. Our inclusion in the GEI recognizes the progress we have made and reflects our ongoing effort to foster an inclusive, innovative and empowering workplace at Radian.”
The GEI tracks the financial performance of public companies committed to supporting gender equality through policy development, representation, and transparency. The reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. This year, Bloomberg expanded the eligibility for inclusion in the index to nearly 6,000 companies across 84 countries and regions.
"The 325 companies included in the 2020 GEI have shown their commitment to transparency and demonstrated leadership in gender-related data reporting," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. "Disclosure of company statistics and practices is an important first step in supporting gender equality globally."
Through disclosure of gender-related metrics using the GEI framework, the firms included in the 2020 GEI have provided a comprehensive look at their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate. Radian was included in this year’s index for scoring at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect a high level of disclosure and overall performance across the framework’s five pillars.
