HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021–

“We are proud of our sustained success as an industry leader for gender-inclusive policies and practices,” said The Hartford’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Susan Johnson. “At The Hartford, we believe that gender diversity is critical to having the range of voices and perspectives needed for us to be innovative, take risks, solve problems creatively, turn challenges into opportunities and achieve better business outcomes. This recognition along with our long-standing focus on diversity and inclusion makes us a company of choice for employees, business partners and customers.”
To be considered for the index, The Hartford voluntarily participated in a Bloomberg GEI survey that measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. Companies included in the 2020 GEI have provided a comprehensive look at their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate, raising the bar of what should be expected from other companies within the same industry. The Hartford was included in this year’s index for scoring at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect a high level of disclosure and overall performance across the framework’s five pillars.
“The companies included in the 2021 GEI are expanding the ESG data universe to include gender-related data that investors are demanding today,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. “Their commitment to disclosure is making the business case for inclusion, and driving transparency in the markets.”
Building a diverse workforce and nurturing an inclusive culture is a moral imperative, powerful business requirement – and a top priority for The Hartford. That’s why the company has continued to focus its investments in talent development initiatives related to diversity and inclusion strategies, including leadership training, mentoring and the company’s nine employee resource groups, which includes the Professional Women’s Network.
