As the world has made progress in gender equality and women’s empowerment through the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education for boys and girls), women and girls continue to experience discrimination and violence in every part of the world.
Gender equality is not just a basic human right, but a necessary condition for a prosperous, sustainable and peaceful world.
Ensuring women and girls equal access to education, medical care, decent work, as well as representation in decision-making, political and economic processes, will promote sustainable economies, which will benefit societies and humanity as a whole.
This is the second objective that we have set ourselves in our Code of Ethics, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations and which are at the heart of its “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.
Within the 2030 Agenda we find Objective 5 whose title is:
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Among the various goals listed, we are committed to ensuring that our collaborators are enabled to work in an environment that fully enhances their potential and their skills. Furthermore, and this is as true for women as it is for men, we are committed to offering enough flexibility so that every worker can find the best balance between private life and work commitment. The future is being built day by day and not in part is already present.
