Inclusion and Diversity Ratings
Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index
German Diversity Index
For the sixth year running, Allianz is included in the Bloomberg GEI. The Index currently includes 380 companies across 11 sectors in 44 countries and regions, and evaluates gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, pro-women brand, as well as seniority gap and equal pay.
Allianz has been ranked number 5 in the Refinitiv Diversity & Inclusion Index 2021 – as the only German company among the top 20 and the only insurer in the top 100.
The Refinitiv Diversity & Inclusion Index is a global, annual D&I ranking published since 2016. The D&I ratings cover 11,000 listed companies across the four main pillars of diversity, inclusion, people development and controversies.
Allianz was ranked second in the German Diversity Index 2021 of BeyondGenderAgenda. The index reflects the transparency of the diversity commitment of the DAX 30 companies in their annual and sustainability reports of 2020. The index evaluation is based on three main categories, (1) a holistic understanding of diversity, (2) diversity is an executive directive, (3) defining key performance indicators.
