Linde Recognized by Bloomberg as a Leader in Gender Equality
Linde (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN) today announced it has been recognized as a leader in gender equality by Bloomberg for the fourth consecutive year.
Linde has been selected for inclusion in the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which tracks the financial performance of companies Bloomberg considers to be most committed to gender equality. Members are selected based on a rigorous assessment of their disclosure and performance scores in 74 metrics across five key areas: leadership & talent pipeline; equal pay; inclusive culture; policies and brand. Bloomberg's Gender Reporting Framework is updated annually to reflect emerging best practices. Linde has been included in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index since its launch in 2018, initially as Praxair.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed inequalities in our society, including for women in the workplace," said Vanessa Abrahams-John, Chief Diversity Officer for Linde. "Linde's steadfast commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion is reflected in its continued inclusion in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. We are proud to be recognized as we strive to meet Linde's target of 30% professional females by 2030."
Inclusion is one of Linde's five core values and the company is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best talent to build high-performance teams. Linde is a DiversityInc Noteworthy Company, was named one of Forbes' America's Best Employers for Diversity in 2020 and participates each year in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index.
