This spring, L’Oréal was ranked nr.1 in Equileap's 2017 Global Gender Equality Ranking, among over 3 000 companies (with a market capitalisation of over 2 billion USD) in 23 countries based on 19 gender equality criteria.
Equileap, a non-profit organization, published the first cross-sector ranking showing how well the world’s top companies, across all sectors and countries, perform on gender equality. Equileap was created in the light of independent research showing that gender diverse companies tend to produce higher financial returns. Equal pay and more broadly, equal opportunities at work are powerful levers to grow global prosperity.
This unprecedented ranking will help investors discover which companies lead the field in terms of gender balance so they can invest with a gender lens aiming to make a difference and a return.
Please listen to Diana van Maasdijk, Co-Founder and CEO of Equileap and Jean Claude Le Grand, L’Oréal Senior VP Talent Development and Chief Diversity Officer commenting on this ranking:
