Northern Trust Included in Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index


Northern Trust Also Honored By Forbes and FORTUNE Rankings

Northern Trust announced today that it is one of 104 companies included
in Bloomberg's first sector-neutral Gender-Equality Index (GEI).

For inclusion in the index, Northern Trust submitted a survey created by
Bloomberg in partnership with third-party groups including Catalyst,
Women's Word Banking, Working Mother Media, National Women's Law Center,
and National Partnership for Women & Families. Those included on this
year's index scored at or above Bloomberg's global threshold to reflect
disclosure and the achievement or adoption of best-in-class statistics
and policies.

"Northern Trust is proud to be recognized among companies that believe
that transparency is a critical component of addressing gender issues,"
said Connie Lindsey, head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Global
Diversity and Inclusion at Northern Trust. "Northern Trust's inclusion
on Bloomberg's GEI supports the firm's principles and the values of our
employees, clients and stakeholders."

Women in GEI member firms comprised 46 percent of the workforce on
average, earned 46 percent of the promotions, held 26 percent of senior
leadership positions, and 19 percent of executive officer roles.
Furthermore, GEI member firms boasted a 33 percent increase in executive
level positions from fiscal year 2014-2016 and 26 percent representation
on boards.

"We commend Northern Trust and the other 103 companies included in the
2018 GEI for their efforts to create work environments that support
gender equality across a diverse range of industries," said Peter T.
Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30%
Club. "Their leadership sets an important example that will help all
organizations innovate and navigate the growing demand for diverse and
inclusive workplaces."

This year Bloomberg measured companies across a variety of sectors such
as communication, consumer staples, energy, financial, health care,
industrial, materials and technology. The GEI measures gender equality
across internal company statistics, employee policies, community support
and engagement, and gender-conscious product offerings. The survey is
voluntary, with no associated fees.

Northern Trust is consistently recognized for exemplary business
practices and was recently named to FORTUNE Magazine's "World's
Most Admired Companies
" list, and ranked #1 in Forbes Magazine's "Best
Employers for Diversity
" list.
