Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC, “Kilroy”) today announced that it is listed as one of 418 companies across 45 countries and regions included in the 2022 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). The Index is a modified market capitalization-weighted list that aims to track the performance of public companies committed to transparency in gender-data reporting and measures gender equality across five pillars:
- Female leadership & talent pipeline
- Equal pay & gender pay parity
- Inclusive culture
- Anti-sexual harassment policies
- Pro-women brand
“We’re honored to be once again recognized on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index as we continue to focus on fostering an equitable workplace for our expanding team and portfolio,” said Heidi Roth, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Kilroy. “As we’ve continued to grow, it’s been a top priority to develop and refine our policies and programs on an ongoing basis, ensuring all our employees are receiving equal opportunity and treatment in the organization.”
The Bloomberg survey assesses companies on their female leadership and talent pipeline. As of December 31, 2021, Kilroy’s overall workforce was 57% female, with women comprising more than 50% of new hires in 2021. The company offers generous paid parental leave for everyone, a parental leave coaching program, adoption assistance, contraception and fertility services, and flexible work schedules. In addition, Kilroy continuously looks for new and better ways to foster a diverse and inclusive work environment, including requiring unconscious bias training for all employees.
“We are proud to recognize Kilroy and the other 417 companies included in the 2022 GEI for their commitment to transparency and setting a new standard in gender-related data reporting,” said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “Even though the threshold for inclusion in the GEI has risen, the member list continues to grow. This is a testament that more companies are working to improve upon their gender-related metrics, fostering more opportunity for diverse talent to succeed in their organizations.
