Increasing Female Representation Among Top Leaders

At nearly all levels of our company – including senior managers, directors, and executive directors – our global employee population reflects an equal number of women and men. Among top leadership, our percentage of women continues to increase, with the number of women VPs and above rising in four of the past five years. We are actively working to extend this upward trajectory and accelerate the addition of more women to our executive ranks.
