Today, we were named a member of the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index! A big part of making Rogers one of the best places to work in Canada is ensuring that we are a destination for talent in our industry. Today, we’re proud to share that our passion for creating opportunities for our people is being recognized — Rogers has been named a member of 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which shares data on over 200 companies that lead in gender equality around the world! The GEI looks at our internal statistics, policies, engagement and other gender-conscious programs that reflect our commitment to advancing women in the workplace and marketplace. We sat down with Nancy Nazer, SVP Organizational Development & Enterprise Learning, to learn more about the progress we’ve made and what it means to make the GEI for the second year in a row. What does this recognition mean to you? It reflects our focus on building an inclusive culture where we celebrate and leverage diversity to positively impact teams and customers. As part of our overall Inclusion and Diversity strategy over the past three years, we’ve aimed to not only increase representation of women in leadership, but to support all women through the stages of their lives, including how they develop and grow at Rogers. Where are we making good progress? I’m proud that we reached 30% executive women representation last year–that’s up 10% in just three years, and we aren’t stopping there. I believe we’ll continue to see improvement through initiatives like our Accelerated Development Program, designed to help some of our strongest women leaders to grow in their role and into executive roles through sponsorship and development opportunities. Our Employee Survey score on feelings of inclusion among women has gone up 7% pts since 2015, which is another amazing achievement.  I think we’ll see our overall diversity and inclusion scores grow as we build more awareness through things like our Employee Resource Groups, Unconscious Bias training, leadership commitments and by embedding inclusion into how we work together every day. How will we will keep up this momentum? We will get even stronger when we are all committed to making Rogers the best place to work, to helping our teams, customers and communities feel like they belong. Together, we need to rally behind our I&D strategy, and get behind the development of our teams so we can all build an amazing career here!
