HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hartford announced that it is included in the 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). This marks the eighth consecutive year The Hartford has been named to the index since its inauguration in 2016.
“We are proud to again receive this prestigious recognition for our gender-inclusive policies and practices that drive representation and inclusion for women,” said The Hartford’s Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer, Susan Johnson. “We are creating a sustainable diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) culture by taking a whole-company approach embedded in all levels of the organization, which continues to elevate women across the company.
To be considered for the index, The Hartford voluntarily participated in a Bloomberg GEI survey that asks questions related to each of the five pillars: leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand. The Hartford was included in this year’s index for scoring at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect disclosure and the achievement or adoption of best-in-class statistics and policies.
"Congratulations to the companies that are included in the 2023 GEI," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. "We continue to see an increase in both interest and membership globally, reflecting a shared goal of transparency in gender-related metrics.”
The Hartford’s DEI strategy comprises board governance, CEO engagement, leadership accountability for the achievement of representation and pay data goals, and a commitment to the practices that encourage and enable all people to participate and achieve their full potential. The company has focused investments in talent development initiatives related to DEI strategies, including leadership training, addressing unconscious bias in systems that support talent management, mentoring and the company’s nine employee resource groups, which includes the Professional Women’s Network.
