Ford Part Of 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index

Ford has long strived to provide an inclusive workplace for its employees, most recently amending its bylaws to adopt gender-neutral job titles back in July 2021. This – along with promoting gender diversity in its executive ranks, expanding its parental leave policy, promoting LGBTQ equality, and celebrating and recognizing the role minorities have played in its success – has also now helped earn the automaker recognition in the 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, the fifth consecutive year that The Blue Oval has appeared on that particular list.

The 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index tracks the performance of public companies that disclose their efforts to promote gender diversity and inclusion in the workplace through policy development, representation, pay equity, culture, and transparency. The framework was designed to bring transparency to gender-related practices and policies at publicly listed companies and increase the breadth of social and governance data available to investors.

GEI participants are scored against five key pillars – leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand. In addition to the pillars, exploratory questions were included in the framework, allowing for other areas of the “S” to be explored. These questions, surveyed but not scored, covered other areas such as race and sexual orientation, gender identity, and ethnicity. This year’s GEI found that Ford improved in most of these areas, particularly in the categories of inclusive culture and representation of women throughout the company.

“I’m thrilled that the Bloomberg GEI has recognized Ford for the fifth year in a row among companies demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO. “Our commitment to DEI makes our company stronger, helping us attract the best talent, compete, and win in an era of tremendous transformation. Guided by our purpose, Ford will continue to be at the forefront of positive change, driving action that helps build a better world.”

    Jimmie sounds like another culture warrior leading his once-great company down the drain while feeling fully self-satisfied in winning a minor battle while losing the war.

      Seems like to you, great means exclusionary.

      Your jealousy of those working to make things better for all is quite remarkable.

      You needn’t be so dystopic and misanthropic, it’s a sad way to go through life.

      Corporate Leadership is so much more than doing only the things ‘you like’…. plus all the stuff that is ‘way over your head’. Perhaps you might just keep looking at the pictures and leave it to the smarter kids to read the articles…
