Siemens Gamesa recognized in Bloomberg's Gender Equality index
Fourth consecutive year that company features in index
Madrid / 1 February 2023
The Bloomberg´s Gender Equality Index (GEI) 2023 recognizes companies committed to disclosing their efforts to support gender equality through policy development, representation and transparency. Siemens Gamesa has promoted numerous initiatives that have earned it recognition from this index. This year's GEI comprises 484 companies from 45 countries or regions in 11 different industries.
While it is true that there is still some way to go, Siemens Gamesa has been working for years on policies and initiatives that have earned it this recognition.
The "Getting to 25 in 2025" program is an example of this, the main objective being to have 25% women in the workforce and 25% women in senior management positions, has evolved to reach 30% of women represented in professional positions and 25% of women in senior management positions by end of 2025. So far, the percentage of women in professional positions is 27% and 14% in senior management.
Given the key role of language in shaping cultural and social attitudes, adopting an inclusive language is a powerful way to fight stereotypes, prejudices and bias which is why Siemens Gamesa has developed a second edition of the Inclusive Language Guide, a way of projecting equality so that no employee feels any kind of discrimination.
Diversity and inclusion are key drivers at Siemens Gamesa. The company has included diversity and inclusion indicators in the short-term incentives for Executive Committee members and other senior managers. For the second consecutive year, we developed an Inclusive Leadership training program for senior management. So far, more than 200 managers have participated.
Harassment, in general, and in this case, workplace harassment, is another concern in today's society. Siemens Gamesa has updated its existing Workplace Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Program to include formal complaint mechanisms, the inclusion of abuse of authority, the responsibility of all employees to prevent workplace harassment and the expansion of channels for seeking help, among others.
There is still a long way to go, but goals are not achieved on their own, they are built. Siemens Gamesa is committed to building by creating initiatives and developing policies that work and that have made progress on this long road. What really matters is ensuring that the right interventions are being made to make Siemens Gamesa a company where everyone can thrive.
