WPP’s inclusion acknowledges the continued implementation of best-in-class policy development and data reporting

WPP was named in the 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) for the fifth consecutive year.

The 2023 GEI represents companies from 45 countries and regions, measuring gender equality across five pillars: leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand.

WPP’s inclusion in this year’s index acknowledges the company’s continued implementation of best-in-class policy development and data reporting against a global threshold established by Bloomberg.

Mark Read, CEO of WPP, said: “Nurturing diverse and inclusive workplaces not only creates an environment where our people feel supported to grow their careers and be innovative, it benefits our client and partners too.

“We want WPP to be the employer of choice for all, and I’m proud of our inclusion as a Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index industry leader for our ongoing focus on improving gender equality in the workplace,” he added.

Peter T. Grauer, chairman of Bloomberg and founding chairman of the U.S. 30% Club said: “Congratulations to the companies that are included in the 2023 GEI. We continue to see an increase in both interest and membership globally, reflecting a shared goal of transparency in gender-related metrics.”

This comes after WPP announced its acquisition of digital transformation agency Fēnom Digital, in North America.

Fēnom Digital, founded by Dylan Runne three years ago in New York, specialises in delivering enterprise commerce, order management systems, supply chain, marketing, and customer experience solutions to retailers and brands across North America.

The company calls upon over 190 highly skilled technologists to deliver solutions that drive more than $5 billion of digital sales for clients annually, including Basset Furniture, Casper, Crocs, David Yurman, GNC, PacSun and Snipes.

Fēnom Digital will join WPP’s world-class, global commerce capability within Wunderman Thompson, which drives over $30 billion in GMV for brands such as Nestlé, Bosch and Microsoft.
