Around 21% of U.S. executives or senior officials at Goldman Sachs are women, according to statistics published Thursday as part of the bank's annual Environmental, Social and Governance Report.

Reuters reports that percentage is below the 29% national average of senior officials in U.S. finance and insurance who are women, according to the most recent data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Women made up 48% of mid-level officials and managers in the United States within finance and insurance, compared with 26% at Goldman.

Asked to comment on the 21% figure, a Goldman spokesman said: "Goldman Sachs is committed to fostering a work environment that values diverse backgrounds and perspectives."
