    Chair of Women, Business and Society

Which are the objectives of this Chair?

Women account for 50% of worldwide human capital and are as prepared as men. However, they have a low presence in management positions primarily due to reasons other than their abilities and availability. Therefore, Fundación San Telmo wants to work in order to change this lack of opportunities through a set of objectives

Working with people in management positions within institutions, companies and media to make them aware of the importance of the co-creation of society by women and men and the added value we get from encouraging the contribution of women in the managerial sphere. 

Ensuring greater visibility for businesswomen and women managers and, consequently, creating examples, models and good practices. Academic research proves that the presence of women in senior management positions contributes to the recruitment and retention of female talent.

Making business systems and policies to give women and men a valuable contribution in both professional and personal levels.

Mission
