Bloomberg places MetLife in Gender-Equality Index for 8th consecutive year


MetLife, Inc. announced that it has been named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) for the eighth consecutive year. The GEI tracks the performance of public companies that report gender-related data.

The index assesses gender equality in five areas: leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand.

“Realizing the potential of women in the workplace by reinforcing an inclusive culture, growing careers and developing leaders is directly aligned to MetLife’s purpose of building more confident futures for all,” said MetLife Chief Human Resources Officer Susan Podlogar.

“Our focus on gender equity is part of our company’s broader commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, which we believe creates an environment where our employees are energized to drive innovation for our customers and other stakeholders.”

MetLife is addressing the needs of the underserved and underrepresented through a combination of investments, products and services, supply chain, volunteering, and community efforts as part of its 2030 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commitments. MetLife's diversity, equity, and inclusion focus areas include:
  • MetLife is a member of the UN Global Compact's (UNGC) Target Gender Equality Initiative, a gender-equality accelerator program for companies that have signed on to the UNGC.
  • MetLife is implementing the UN Women's Empowerment Principles through time-bound action plans aimed at building a workplace that works for all.
