Mediobanca selected for 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, recognizing commitment to advancing women in the workplace

Mediobanca today announced that it is one of 230 companies selected for the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) which distinguishes companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality. 

As far as we are concerned diversity is a value, which is why we will continue to work to improve our female employment indicators in all business areas. Though we are in line with the statistics for the banking sector as a whole, we are looking to support growth in the working population by introducing the appropriate training programmes” says Mediobanca’s CEO Alberto Nagel. The Group, which currently has a headcount of around 4,600 staff with women accounting for more than 40% of the professionals, has been providing additional support to employees on maternity leave since 2012.

We intend to cover all issues relating to female employment in our annual non-financial reporting. With this in mind, it is important for us to initiate accurate monitoring of women in our workplace to further improve our performance in terms of gender inequality indicators”.
