Diversity and equal opportunity

The diversity of employee cultures, ethnic groups, beliefs and languages is what makes Gamesa increasingly innovative, creative, sensitive and socially-committed.

The organisation’s commitment to equal opportunities, respect for diversity and its zero-tolerance stance on discrimination - expressly enshrined in the company’s Code of Conduct - form the foundation of Gamesa’s cross-cutting diversity and inclusion policy, which applies across all its operating markets.

In 2015, Gamesa reinforced these pledges by means of:

  • The Diversity Charter: in 2015, the company renewed its membership of this initiative, promoted by the Diversity Foundation and championed by the European Commission and Spanish Ministry of Equality; signature of this Charter commits Gamesa to compliance with equal opportunities and anti-discrimination legislation.
  • ‘Companies for a society free of domestic violence’ campaign: Gamesa has formalised its support for this initiative, spearheaded by the Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, which seeks to boost equality and respect for basic rights and to build a society free of violence against women.
  • ‘More women, better companies’: the company has also endorsed this project, which is similarly backed by the Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality. Gamesa has set itself some very specific targets: by 2018 it wants to increase the number of women in pre-management positions from 19% to 25% and in management positions (including the female presence on the management committee) from 9% to 20%. Moreover, its goal is to ensure that at least 30% of its board members are female.

These initiatives come on the heels of execution of the firm’s second Equality Plan, establishment of a Harassment Protocol and Gamesa’s signature, in 2010, of the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles.

Lastly, Gamesa’s remuneration model, as stipulated in its Code of Conduct, is based on the equal opportunities principle in order to prevent any form of discrimination, ensure compliance with labour laws in all its operating markets and fairly reward its employees for their efforts.
