The Gender-Equality Index provides insight into an opaque area of ESG data reporting
JERSEY CITY, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2023 / Amdocs (NASDAQ:DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced that it joins 483 other companies as a member of the 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a modified market capitalization-weighted index developed to gauge the performance of public companies dedicated to reporting gender-related data. This reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand.
The 2023 GEI reaches globally to represent 45 countries and regions, including firms headquartered in Luxembourg, Ecuador, and Kuwait for the first time. Member companies represent a variety of sectors, including financials, technology, and utilities, which continue to have the highest company representation in the index from 2022.
'As a company, we are committed to diversity, believing a gender diverse, multi-cultural and multi-generational workforce provides strength and a competitive advantage,' said Amdocs' Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, Tamar Rapaport-Dagim. 'We need to focus on creating an equal future for all, as this means everyone can fulfill their true potential, and we're proud of the great strides we've made, including being named to Bloomberg's Gender-Equality Index.'
In addition to this achievement, Amdocs continues to make progress in its diversity goals. Women represent 33% of the Amdocs workforce, compared to an industry benchmark of 28%.Half of Amdocs' testing engineers are women, and female team leads within the company increased 20% over the last two years. Amdocs' INSPIRE program, a long-term innovative organizational framework for closing the gender gap, helps all existing leaders become agents of gender diversity change.
'Congratulations to the companies that are included in the 2023 GEI,' said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. 'We continue to see an increase in both interest and membership globally, reflecting a shared goal of transparency in gender-related metrics.'
