FCC renews its commitment to the Diversity Charter

FCC subscribed to the principles of the Diversity Charter in July 2014, through an initiative driven by the Group's Chairwoman, Esther Alcocer Koplowitz, undertaking to comply with a set of ten principles and to impart them with the following values:

  • To promote conciliation of professional and personal life.
  • To raise awareness of the principles of equal opportunities and respect for diversity within the boundaries of the company's values.
  • To build a diverse workforce.
  • To effectively promote discrimination-free integration at work.
  • To implement diversity management in all management policies.

The Diversity Charter is an initiative of the European Commission Directorate-General for Justice for the implementation of policies to tackle discrimination. The Fundación Diversidad, which is promoted by the Fundación Alares, is exclusively responsible for fostering this initiative in Spain, which responds to a voluntary code of commitment to support and promulgate the principles of inclusion, diversity and non-discrimination in the workplace.

By joining this initiative, FCC is backing diversity management as a business, social and legal prerequisite.

All of the above in favour of people's rights –disregarding their age, origin, religion, sexual orientation, race, culture, disability or gender– to have the same opportunities to access, maintain and be promoted in work, thereby synthesising both work and professional life, and all the while upgrading people's quality of life and work.
