Non-discrimination and respect for diversity should be the basis for working relations in any company. Access to employment, training, promotion and equal working conditions are key factors for achieving gender equality in the workplace.
More than two decades ago, Iberdrola paved the way towards clean energy and took the first steps towards a more sustainable and responsible energy model. Now, the company is also paving the way to equality through sport. We have been promoting women's sport for years as a way of improving the recognition of women in society and promoting their empowerment and autonomy.
The Tokyo Olympics will be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021, after a one-year delay due to the pandemic. Meanwhile, the Paralympic Games will take place 15 days later: from 25 August to 6 September. Iberdrola, which has been promoting Spanish sport for more than two decades, is supporting the Olympic athletes in their race to Tokyo.
In 2007, Iberdrola was the first company in the Ibex 35 to implement the uninterrupted schedule for its workforce in Spain, as a way of demonstrating its commitment to achieving the correct work-life balance.
Women represented 23 % of Iberdrola's workforce. Although the progress made so far is significant, our goal is to continue moving forward to become an international benchmark in equality, both inside and outside the company. By 2022, the company intends to have filled 25 % of all management positions with women — as opposed to the current 21.53 % —, which it will increase to 30 % by 2025. It will also continue with its salary equality policy.
Iberdrola group is committed to the best international practices in the field of work-life balance, equality and diversity. Aligned with our policies, we continue to carry out different initiatives in all the countries in which we operate to increase the presence of women in the energy sector and in society in general.
