DIVERSITYINC TOP 50

FROM DIVERSITYINC
  • President and CEO Ajay Banga has publicly addressed the need for corporate America to hire more women and close the gender wage gap. Here is how he describes what behavior is necessary: "We are focused on being a workplace that runs on decency and inclusion. Your DQ, decency quotient, will determine how well you do in life, not just your IQ. When people work in an environment of decency and fairness, they carry a passion and pride that inspires their best work."
  • He personally led the charge to close the gender wage gap at Mastercard. Women representation in its 10 percent highest paid people increased by 20 percent over the past 4 years.
  • Mastercard also has twice as many women in the top two levels of management than the S&P 500.
