Bloomberg’s gender reporting framework (“GEI framework”) is a standardized reporting method used
globally to acquire comprehensive workplace gender data. The GEI framework defines a set of metrics used
to determine a company’s progress towards equal representation of gender throughout the levels of the
organization, commitment to gender equality goals, policies in place to reduce the impact of familial stresses and responsibilities on the workplace, and progress towards positive impact on women outside of the employee base. On an annual basis, Bloomberg conducts a systematic outreach to a balanced group of representative stakeholders to help to select metrics critical to promoting equity in the workplace in the current global environment surrounding gender equality.
