FCC takes part in the campaign against gender-based violence organised by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality

For another year running, FCC participates in the campaign to raise awareness of gender-based violence which is organised by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, and entitled "If there is a way out of gender-based violence, it is thanks to you. GET INVOLVED". It is a campaign with the aim of getting the general public involved so as to try and forge a society free of gender-based violence and to support women who have been victims of abuse.
 

FCC takes part in the campaign against gender-based violence organised by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality

FCC is committed to putting an end to gender-based violence and we want to remind everyone who works with us of the importance of being vigilant of any sign of violence against women, whatever our scope of action may be.

Human Resources Management, through work carried out by the Equality and Diversity Management Team, continues to promote and encourage actions which are aimed at stimulating equality and fighting against the social scourge of gender-based violence.

Based on our conviction that equality is not only a right, but also the best antidote against gender-based violence, we do not want to sit back and criticise; we want to help raise awareness of this issue in our society and rally support from FCC employees to make a smooth transition of female victims of gender-based abuse into the job market.

FCC's commitment to eliminating gender-based violence can be summarised into two key principles:

• Zero tolerance towards this type of behaviour
• Promotion of the social and professional integration of victims

Since 2010 onwards, FCC has been signing the Collaboration Agreement with the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality to promote awareness on Gender-Based Violence and the victims' Entry into the Labour Market, forming part of the Company Network for a Society Free from Gender-Based Violence, which renewed its commitment in 2014.

For the true effective compliance with this commitment and the principles which FCC upholds, we have various signed agreements with companies specialised in finding work for female victims of gender-based violence, such as the Red Cross and the Integra Foundation.

FCC has also signed up to the "Women's Empowerment Principles" which form part of the United Nations Global Compact, and last year we signed the Diversity Charter, strengthening our principles of equality, diversity and antidiscrimination, promoting inclusion and reconciliation measures, and in line with the FCC Quality and Diversity Policy and Ethical Code, which have both been approved by the Board of Directors.

Moreover, all Equality Plans from the FCC Citizen Services Group include a specific chapter on raising awareness of the fight against gender-based violence, with measures which reaffirm the company's commitment to the reintegration of victims into the world of employment. FCC is devoted to training and informing, facilitating channels to lodge reports, and disseminating using all available means, its commitment to abolishing gender-based violence.

Lastly, as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November approaches, FCC calls upon all employees to take account of its principles and promote its commitment and visions: zero tolerance towards gender-based violence and driving the social and professional integration of female victims.
