With the aim of joining forces and efforts to eradicate violence against women, last Tuesday, July 14th, Alfonso de los Heros, Country President On-Site Services and CEO Benefits and Incentives Sodexo Peru, with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee representatives, held a meeting with the Minister of Women and Vulnerable Populations (MIMP), Gloria Montenegro Figueroa.

The Sodexo Peru gender equity agenda and the initiatives focusing on eliminating all forms of violence against women, were presented to the Ministry. Recently, Sodexo has joined the MIMP Campaign “No Estás Sola” ("You are not alone"), creating its own internal campaign #CambiemosLaRealidad (#Let’sChangeTheReality), which seeks to generate awareness and a changed behavior on this issue, of more than 300 thousand people, among collaborators, customers, users and beneficiaries of the Quality of Life Services of Sodexo in Peru.


Both campaigns complement each other and spread promotional messages so that more women can get to know the Line 100, a service that the State has made available because of the increased violence cases, and in order to promote equal relations among family members.


The Ministry recognized Sodexo's leadership in Peru regarding the issues mentioned, and appreciated Sodexo’s efforts, which drives the company to continue working on awareness-raising.  "Our Society needs to place the respect for women's rights and integrity above personal interests. As a company that defends Gender Equity we are strongly committed to this cause. I am convinced that, if we stop accepting sexist behaviors, discrimination and injustice, we will achieve a culture of equity and equal opportunities for both men and women." affirmed Alfonso de los Heros.


Lastly, De los Heros stated that their firm commitment to achieving gender parity in the workplace has allowed them to increase the women participation in the Energy and Resources Segment (E&R) by 5% in the last year, i.e. an increase from 21% to 26% that contributes to female growth within this segment, where the average female recruitment in Peru is only 6%.
