Barrick continues its good work on gender equality in the workplace

TORONTO, June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD)(TSX:ABX) continues to make great advances in its commitment to gender equality in the workplace. Yesterday, Barrick Pueblo Viejo began a certification process for gender equality at the Pueblo Viejo mine in the Dominican Republic.

With this initiative Barrick continues to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the Dominican Strategy Development Law in reducing gender salary differences, increasing employment of women and promoting the participation of women in leadership positions.

“At Barrick we believe in a diverse and inclusive working environment regardless of gender and this initiative will continue the good work we have already done in this area of our business. We feel very proud to join this initiative and we invite all men and women across our organization to lead by example and make a more inclusive gender world,” said Mark Bristow, President and Chief Executive of Barrick.

Barrick’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and Human Rights Policy require that our workplaces are free of discrimination and we recognize a women’s right to equality.
