Today, it was revealed that Moody's Corporation had been named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) for the third consecutive year. The worldwide business community honored Moody's for its continued leadership in advancing gender equality among its peer companies.

“Moody’s continued inclusion in Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index is a strong testament to our ongoing work to support women in the workplace,”

said DK Bartley, Chief Diversity Officer at Moody’s.

“As we look ahead, our actions will continue to be guided by our values – namely to foster an environment at Moody’s where all employees can thrive.”

The GEI is a reference index that measures and tracks the performance of public companies across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. The index is designed to help investors direct capital to companies committed to supporting gender equality through proactive policies and transparency.
