Equality is the single most important ethical issue businesses today need to face head-on. Creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce – to serve an increasingly diverse consumer base – is also vital to the success of virtually every business operating today.
The Future of Equality
Complementing Bloomberg LP’s investment in creating the Gender Equality Index (GEI) – a tool that tracks key elements of gender and equality balance, allowing companies to drive accountability around diversity initiatives – we present the Bloomberg Equality Summit, a cross-platform editorial initiative that will bring together business, academic and political leaders as well as nonprofits and activists to discuss the future of equality, how we get there and what is at stake for the economy and society at-large.
Anchored in a full-day conference, Bloomberg Equality will foster forward-looking conversations and spotlight influential business leaders who are paving the way.
