National Bank announces that it has been selected for the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) among a global pool of organizations headquartered across 36 countries and regions. The Index distinguishes companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.
"We’re committed to continuing our efforts to create an inclusive workplace that allows women to achieve their full potential,” said Brigitte Hébert, Executive Vice-President – Employee Experience and Operations at National Bank. “Embracing inclusion and advancing gender equality is not only a desirable social outcome, but one of the soundest business decisions that organizations can make. We’re thrilled to be included in this year’s Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. It gives us insight and perspective on our achievements, how we’re advancing on gender equality, and ways forward.”
"We applaud National Bank for their action to measure gender equality through the Bloomberg GEI framework,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “National Bank’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.”
