International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
I agree with Fernando in highlighting the cooperation agreements with social organizations in order to promote labor integration in companies. In this line, since 2013 we are part of the “Network of Companies for a Society Free of Gender Violence”, promoted by the Ministry of Equality and in which, in 2019, we took a further step to join this network in Murcia. In addition, I think it is important to highlight the number of new contracts within this group, over 230, and that, along with other initiatives, they have translated into acknowledgements and awards from the Spanish Red Cross and Integra Foundation.
In my opinion, labor market integration for these women is, in many cases, a decisive tool to leave the situation of gender violence behind, the possibility of being self-sufficient and being able to start a new life.
As professionals in areas especially related to people, what does it mean for you to work in a company that is especially sensitive to this cause?
It is a great privilege for me to work in a company with social concerns, with commitment in its DNA. Especially because I believe that, of all the areas involved in eradicating gender violence, promoting the employment of women who are victims of this type of violence is one of the most important and it’s really necessary.
