Really?? – Avon recognised in Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index???
Kelvin’s personal view on this press release:
Maybe? If Avon really wants to recognise gender equality then maybe they should focus on actual equality. Not just women!
Avon today announces its inclusion in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) which distinguishes companies setting an example to advance women in the workplace through measurement and transparency.
This is the second time Avon has been selected for the GEI, which recognises Avon’s commitment to creating opportunities for women to earn and learn.
Advancing economic participation for women has been part of Avon’s DNA for over 130 years. In 2019, Avon built on its existing foundations with more programmes to support its female associates, as well as launching stand4her, a global programme to create a better world for women, through women (AND MEN! there are many! VERY successful male reps).
“We’re delighted that Avon has been included in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the second year running,” says Angela Cretu, Avon’s Chief Executive Officer. “Empowering women is fundamental to our business mission and social purpose and we want to open up more opportunities for more women with Avon. It’s always terrific for our efforts to be recognised and this benchmarking programme supports our commitment to continuous improvement.”
