Chair's fundamental objectives

The San Telmo Foundation believes in diversity and the specific and distinctive contribution of women and men to the co-creation of society: institutions, companies and families.

The Chair in Women, Business and Society was born in 2016 with the following objectives:

  • To encourage women participation in management and decision-making positions in companies.
  • To work with those people who are in management positions in institutions, companies and media to sensitize on the importance of co-creation by women and men for the society, and the value added by promoting women’s contribution to management.
  • To raise the visibility of women entrepreneurs and in leadership roles to have examples, references and good practices. Academic research reveals that the presence of women in senior positions contributes to attract and retain female talent.
  • To implement effective policies and procedures in companies to facilitate that women and men make a valuable contribution at professional, personal and family level.
