What Women Should Know about Working At Thomson Reuters
In a note to Thomson Reuters staff on International Women's Day in 2017, Jim Smith, President and CEO, announced a commitment to increasing female representation in senior leadership roles.

"Women make up 43 percent of our employee population but only 30 percent of our senior leadership. I think we can do better. I believe diversity matters, and that our executive ranks need to better reflect our employee and customer bases.

To that end, I am pleased to announce that Thomson Reuters has committed to reaching a minimum of 40 percent female representation in senior leadership roles, globally, by 2020. Declaring this incremental target, and publicly reporting our progress as part of our Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion Annual Report, will help us move faster, and keep us accountable. A diverse and inclusive company is a company I want to work for, and I am excited about what we can all achieve moving forward, together."

Parental Leave

    • Overview: Parental leave policies
    • Not long ago, Thomson Reuters announced it was extending its parental leave policy in the U.S., giving both parents – not just the birth mother – 12 weeks of paid leave within a year of the child’s birth or adoption. For the birth parent, parental leave begins when disability ends, which generally extends the period of paid leave to 18 weeks.Beyond the fact that it’s the right thing to do, it’s a sensible measure for any company that prides itself as a champion of innovation, diversity and inclusion.
