As part of its commitment to sustainability, during 2020 the Riopaila Castilla Group strengthened its commitment to inclusion and diversity through the implementation of the Gender Equality policy that responds to Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 10: "Equality of gender” and “Reduction of Inequalities”.
– Within the framework of this policy, it promotes equal opportunities for men and women, and designs actions in the processes aimed at working towards the eradication of any type of violence, harassment or discrimination based on origin, age, gender, sex, affiliation politics, race, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.
– Articulated to this initiative, at the beginning of 2020, it joined the WEPs community, "Women's Empowerment Principles", as an articulating vehicle for the fulfillment of the gender equality dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Organization.
– Throughout the year, it strengthened its commitment to gender inclusion and diversity through the creation and inauguration of the gender equality committee, the visibility of the violence meter, communication campaigns such as transformative masculinities and types of violence, the commemoration of the “ International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women”, her participation as a panelist in the webinar led by the UN “exchange of business experiences on adherence to the principles for the economic empowerment of women - WEPs” and through the participation active in the “business school weaving paths for equity, led by the Mayor's Office of Santiago de Cali.
– In this way Riopaila Castilla is the first company in the sector in Colombia to belong to the WEPs community, and thanks to its work practice it will continue this year 2021, on the path of commitment to an inclusive work culture that ensures equal treatment and fair at all levels of the organization.
