Gentis 9 CSR 9 Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities

The principle of gender equality is one of the core pillars of modern societies. The achievement of this political principle has been present since the creation of democratic states. However, their recognition has not been total for the entire citizenry: women did not begin a process of equalizing formal rights until the beginning of the 20th century. The sexual division of labor is still in force and organizing social structures in such a way that real equality is still a challenge to achieve.

Gender inequality has been invisible for a long time. In the application of our corporate social responsibility, we understand that companies and entities must lead the development of these policies of equal opportunities between men and women; both in our internal organization and in the social impact that our work implies. In this sense, Plataforma Educativa includes in its policy, equal opportunities between all genders and the right to non-discrimination and freedom as principles that underpin the organization and performance of the entities that are members.

The entity works to incorporate the gender perspective in a transversal way as a key element in the operation of all its services, actions, and projects including the global view of the entity and the working people and the specific view of the projects and the people served. The aim of incorporating this global and specific perspective makes it easier to find strategies to promote social changes and avoid any type of discrimination, with special emphasis on gender, aligning ourselves with the sustainable development objectives (ODS) of the 2030 Agenda ( ODS5. Gender Equality and ODS10. Reduction of inequalities).
