The Future of Equality

Complementing Bloomberg LP’s investment in creating the Gender Equality Index (GEI) – a tool that tracks key elements of gender and equality balance, allowing companies to drive accountability around diversity initiatives – we present the Bloomberg Business of Equality, a cross-platform editorial initiative that will bring together business, academic and political leaders as well as nonprofits and activists to discuss the future of equality, how we get there and what is at stake for the economy and society at-large.
