SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A company's commitment to diversity and women's advancement within the workplace is more vital today than ever, and for the third consecutive year, national homebuilder and developer Taylor Morrison Home Corp. (NYSE: TMHC) is being recognized for such efforts. Taylor Morrison has been included as one of only 380 companies, and the only U.S. homebuilder, on the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), fostering greater transparency and an inclusive work environment in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
"Considering women tend to be key decision makers in the homebuying process, having a nearly equal male-to-female representation, 53 and 47 percent, respectively, helps us to mirror our customer base and better understand their wants and needs," said Taylor Morrison Chairman and CEO Sheryl Palmer. "We all benefit from greater diversity of thought and the intrinsic differences men and women bring to the table. While there's more work to be done to make Taylor Morrison the most inclusive and representative organization it can be, this repeated recognition in gender equality is a point of pride for the company." Of all companies included in the 2021 GEI, only 23 companies or six percent, including Taylor Morrison, have a female CEO or equivalent.*
Taylor Morrison scored above average of all companies included in the 2021 GEI in many areas including:*
