Ellas Vuelan Alto (Women Fly High) honours ENAIRE for its firm commitment to promoting gender equality policies
The Ellas Vuelan Alto association, whose aim is to bring women from the aerospace
industry into the limelight, recognises ENAIRE for its work to encourage gender
equality and diversity.
Ellas Vuelan Alto presented its “Company Award” to ENAIRE for its notable role in
implementing gender diversity and equality policies.
According to Gema Martín del Burgo, the association’s president, “ENAIRE, a
company that has been with us from the start, this year launched its “ENAIRE en
femenino” project, a collaborative network that provides an opportunity to
showcase professional women with different occupations, training and visions.
This networking space provides job opportunities for these women in the sector,
and addresses the importance of equality in the professional development and
leadership of women”.
Milagros Gutiérrez, who picked up the prize and is the head of the Administrative
Division of ENAIRE’s General Management, stated: “At ENAIRE, our commitment to
equality and diversity is firm and is part of our project to transform as a company.
Our contribution to society involves promoting and endorsing the values of equality
between men and women, among our employees, and supporting every initiative
that furthers the cause of these values in our organisation.
ENAIRE has long had very progressive Equality Policies, which, in some cases, have
even been recognised for their innovation. But this doesn’t mean that we have
reached our goal. We are still working to improve every day and to take part in
projects that contribute to our growth and to achieving a better, more egalitarian
and fairer society”
María López, head of the Corporate Social Responsibility Department, thanked Eva
for her inspiration and support in making the ENAIRE En Femenino network a
reality, and dedicated this prize to all the great women professionals at ENAIRE.
50% of ENAIRE’s Board of Directors is made up of women, who also hold 49% of
management positions, including on the company’s two union boards.
This year’s “Individual Award” went to the female professionals in the Armed Forces
and the Administration, especially in the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and
Migration, who took part in the repatriation from Afghanistan, showcasing Spain as
an example of solidarity and efficiency.
Ellas Vuelan Alto was created three years ago to increase women’s participation in
public and professional life. Since then, its members have been working inclusively
toward equality between women and men, for the benefit of our common social
and economic development, eliminating any discrimination against women and
encouraging the creation of networks for women in aerospace companies.
