Attendees at the event included Leire Pajín Iraola, Minister for Health, Social Policy and Equality, and Bibiana Aído Almagro, Secretary of State for Equality, as well as the members of the thirteen signatory companies; FCC was represented by Francisco Martín Monteagudo, Human Resources Director.

The agreement represents progress in FCC's Corporate Responsibility policy and entails a double commitment: to raise awareness about and prevent domestic violence, both within and outside the company, and to implement hiring policies for victims.

The agreement reflects FCC Group's concern about domestic violence in Spain and evidences its commitment to raising awareness about this issue and to integrating victims both socially and professionally. The company will identify specific job profiles for these women and will work to align corporate needs with those of the victims by providing the necessary training.

The agreement will be effective for one year and may be extended. Other Group companies will be notified and invited to join in this worthy initiative.
