Los Angeles battery technology and global green transport company, Build Your Dreams, has been formally recognized by Bloomberg for its substantial amount of executive female representation in the 2019 Gender-Equality Index. Companies eligible for the recognition foster a working environment that supplies policies and benefits promoting gender equality. Additionally, the companies included in the index are confirmed to have above average females in executive positions.
“BYD is thrilled to stand alongside such a group of progressive, world-renowned companies who stand at the forefront of gender equality. Just as BYD is committed to leading the ongoing global green transport revolution, we are also working hard to create more inclusive, equitable workplaces across our company,” said Stella Li, President of BYD Motors/North America. “We feel inspired and energized from receiving such high-level recognition for our efforts, and will endeavor to continue the great progress represented in this index.”
Bloomberg’s report highlighted over 230 firms from 10 sectors across 36 countries and regions – more than double the amount of companies seen in previous reports.
“We applaud BYD and the other 229 firms tracked by the index for their action to measure gender equality through the Bloomberg GEI framework,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “Greater transparency around workplace inclusion helps firms demonstrate accountability to their employees, investors and communities. GEI Inclusion is a strong indicator that it is leading by example to advance ongoing efforts for a truly inclusive workplace.”
