As part of its commitment to equal opportunities, Confectionary Holding will be participating once again in the campaign that the Adecco Foundation launches each year to raise awareness to coincide with International Women’s Day in order to promote integration into the workplace of those women at risk of social exclusion.
The agrifood group, reference player in the Christmas fare market, is for the fourth year in a row renewing its support for this initiative that tries to improve the employability of women fighting to extract themselves from social exclusion. The Adecco Foundation has on its books more than 5,125 women looking for work.
Under the banner “Never mind the Gender, is there Talent?” the #EmpleoparaTodas awareness campaign will help integrate into the workplace those women who are victims of gender violence, single mothers, the long-term unemployed over the age of 45, those with disabilities, and/or women at risk of social exclusion and looking for work. In 2017, 515 women found work thanks to the Adecco Foundation’s workplace integration campaign and the support from business.
Confectionary Holding will also be collaborating in “Women’s Week”, which from the 5th to the 9th of March will include various workshops focused on encouraging the employment of women at risk of social exclusion.
With this initiative, Confectionary Holding will also be encouraging women to take their place in the labour market on an equal footing, following figures released by the OECD that show that only 66% of women have jobs compared to 80% of men.
This year, the Adecco Foundation’s awareness campaign enjoys the support of the well-known actress and film star, Mabel Lozano, who in recent years has taken a position as a staunch human rights defender.
Based on the creative concept of the speech by Charlie Chaplin in the film “The Great Dictator”, in the campaign Mabel Lozano condemns via a speech the inequality faced by women in the labour market.
