Following its first inclusion last year, Capgemini has once again been listed in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) 2023. The benchmark index, which singled out 484 firms this year, was developed to gauge the performance of public companies dedicated to reporting gender-related data. This reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: leadership & talent pipeline, equal pay & gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand.
Capgemini is committed to offering an inclusive work environment with goals to achieve 30% of women in executive leadership positions and 40% of women in its teams by 2025. It has already increased this rate by 4 percentage points in the last two years. After being included into the Index for the first time in 2022, this year the Group’s overall score is above 80 points, close to 10 points above the industry average and it obtained the maximum score of 100% on 2 of the 5 dimensions: “Anti sexual harassment policies” and “Pro women brands”.
“At Capgemini we believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment makes for a more innovative and successful company, and supports our objective to be an employer of choice for women in the tech industry. The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index gives us a relevant and ambitious framework towards this goal,” said Shobha Meera, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer at Capgemini and member of the Group Executive Committee.
“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.”
Capgemini also recently announced that it has obtained the EDGE Assess and EDGEplus certifications at a global level, demonstrating its commitment towards gender equity and more broadly regarding diversity with all of its dimensions. The Group is also actively engaged to promote a fair representation of people with disabilities and from under‑represented minorities and build a LGBT+ friendly workplace, through the OUTfront Global Network, and has received Stonewall awards in a number of geographies.
