The GEI is 380 companies strong, representing 44 countries around the world committed to a more equal and inclusive workplace with a combined market capitalisation of USD 14 Trillion. The Average overall GEI score is 66 per cent, even as Vakrangee has scored 70.86 per cent.
"We are extremely proud to see that Vakrangee is recognised and included in 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. This recognition reflects our commitment to gender equality and transparency," said Dinesh Nandwana, MD & Group CEO, Vakrangee Ltd.

We strive to build a workplace culture with gender diversity and believe it is core to the success and growth of our company," he added.
The GEI brings transparency to gender-related practices and policies at publicly listed companies increasing the breadth of environmental, social, governance (ESG) data available to investors. The comprehensive, transparent GEI scoring methodology allows investors to assess company performance, compare across industry peer groups.

Through disclosure of gender-related metrics using GEI framework, firms included in the 2021 GEI have committed to provide a comprehensive look at their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate, raising the bar of what should be expected from other companies within the same industry.
