ArcelorMittal announced recently 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 in the workplace.
The index, which has doubled in size since 2018, having introduced thirteen new markets, includes companies from 10 sectors headquartered across 36 countries and regions.
