Lenovo recognised for championing gender equality in the workplace
For the fourth consecutive year, Lenovo has been listed in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a framework that tracks the progress of 484 companies in 11 sectors and 45 markets and regions around the world in women’s empowerment and equality in the workplace.
For the 2023 edition, Lenovo stood out in several categories, including building an inclusive culture, having anti-sexual harassment policies, and developing a strong leadership and talent pipeline.

Calvin Crosslin, Vice President of Human Resources, Chief Diversity Officer, Lenovo and Lenovo Foundation President, said, “Lenovo has always pursued a path of inclusion, and we’ve built a culture where all can belong – and while it’s an honour to once again be recognised on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index our work is not done.”
“By measuring our progress through the Bloomberg GEI, we continue to evolve our approach of building inclusive leadership behaviours and fostering diverse and inclusive systems through increased accountability and training.”
With a global workforce of over 82,000 employees in 180 markets, Lenovo has a female representation of 36% and is committed to increasing the number of female executive leadership positions from 21% in 2020 to 27% by 2025.
