BSX will host its bell ringing ceremony in Hamilton, Bermuda at Exchange Houseon March 8 at 9:00 a.m. Atlantic Standard Time.

 

BSX is partnering with the UN Women Organization for the Ring the Bell for Gender Equality Campaign which serves as a global initiative by exchanges around the world to foster greater gender equality and highlight the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace. BSX is one of 118 exchanges around the world participating in the event.

The UN Women’s theme for International Women’s Day 2022 is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.” The theme recognizes the contributions of women around the world who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation and response to build a more sustainable future for all.

“Becoming a more diverse and inclusive company to reflect the community at large is an important initiative for us at BSX,” said Greg Wojciechowski, CEO of BSX. “By promoting an inclusive culture that supports a diverse array of talented professionals, we aim to successfully add value to the relationships we build with our employees and business partners, and ultimately create value for our shareholders.”

“BSX is committed to developing a rich culture, a diverse workforce, and a healthy sustainable environment where everyone can play a part in the success of the company and at the same time achieve their individual full potential,” said Thomas P. Gallagher, Chairman of BSX, and Chairman and CEO of MIAX. “As a company, we are fully committed to balancing the gender scales by increasing opportunities for the professional development and advancement of women at MIAX and BSX.”

“Gender equality is better for countries’ economic success on a macro-economic level. Research has shown that companies that are intentional about their implementation of gender equality and women’s empowerment policies are more profitable,” said Tonni Brodber, Representative of UN Women Multi Country Office – Caribbean. “We are delighted to have the Bermuda Stock Exchange demonstrate their commitment to gender equality by joining this initiative. We look forward to engaging more members of the private sector in Bermuda to join us by developing mechanisms that incorporate a gender perspective and thereby achieve a greater impact on gender equality and women's empowerment.”

 

Hosted for the eighth consecutive year, Ring the Bell for Gender Equality is a partnership between UN Women, UN Global Compact, Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative, International Finance Corporation (IFC), and World Federation of Exchanges.

 

 

The events bring together businesses working for gender equality and will promote the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) as a means towards increased women’s participation in the economy and its importance for inclusive growth. The WEPs are a set of seven principles offering practical guidance to businesses on how to empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community.
