harmonyMining Weekly reports that gold miners Harmony Gold and Gold Fields have been selected for the 2019 Bloomberg Gender Equality Index that distinguishes companies that are committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.  

The two companies are among 230 companies selected globally for inclusion in the index.  The 230 companies employ more than 15-million people, of whom seven-million are women.  In this year’s index, 13 new markets are represented for the first time, including Argentina, China, Israel and South Africa.  Bloomberg’s standardised reporting framework for the index offers public companies the opportunity to disclose information on how they promote gender equality across four separate areas, namely company statistics, policies, community engagement and products and services.  Reporting companies that score above a globally established threshold are included in the index.
