The Estée Lauder Companies has announced that it is one of more than 100 companies from 10 sectors to join Bloomberg’s inaugural 2018 Gender Equality Index.
The index measures gender equality across internal company statistics, employee policies, external community support and engagement, and gender-conscious product offerings.
“Gender equality and full respect for each individual are absolutely integral to our company values,” said Fabrizio Freda, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Estée Lauder Companies. “Our inclusive culture encourages advocacy, openness and appreciation of our employees’ individuality, which in turn elevates our collective creativity and innovation in meeting the needs of our global consumers through our products and high-touch service.”
Other companies to make the unranked, sector-neutral list include Clorox, Kering and L’Oréal.
