We have created the Women Community, a forum that gathers together nearly 300 Sacyr STEM women (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) roles.
Sacyr Women Community seeks the promotion of talent and leadership of women professionals at Sacyr through different initiatives, such as development programs, conferences, networking, etc.
In order to set this initiative in motion, Sacyr held a presentation event with María Luisa Domíngez, Chairwoman of ADIF, and Manuel Manrique, Chairman of Sacyr, among others.
Silvia Loureda, Engineering Director at Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure, leads this community of STEM women.
The W Community initiative has multiple activities aimed at helping STEM women at Sacyr develop in their careers. Some of them are:
- W Talks: Conferences and meetings aimed at promoting women's perspective and leadership, with the collaboration of relevant women from different sectors.
- Net W-orking: Creation of networking spaces with a virtual community to share content and experiences with the entire STEM women community.
Sacyr will also create an Inspiring Women Committee, including key women in the infrastructure sector, committed to promoting women's talent. They will collaborate in the definition of future initiatives and become an example to the entire community.
• W Support: Development initiatives to promote women's talent, through internal and external programs, collaborations with universities and schools, etc.
• W Analytics: KPI analysis specifically directed at measuring women's indicators, across all People processes to guarantee objectivity and fostering their growth in all fields.
