1. Boost further nominations of women candidates in elections at public and private institutions.
Provided that there is an election process in places of power, both in public institutions and inside businesses, we will campaign to promote the full participation of women candidates and we will support them to be present in these places of power.
2. More women in technology.
We need more women in tech careers, which is such a strategic sector for the development of the country. We will stimulate campaigns focused on encouraging young women to study STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
3. Improve the professional conditions of freelancers and self-employed women.
Freelance and self-employed women, all professional women, constitute an important fabric of our economy.
We must improve their professional conditions and facilitate more resources for women entrepreneurs. We will stimulate campaigns to lobby governments and political groups to improve the legislature for all professional freelancers in Catalonia.
4. More women in decision-making positions at public and private institutions.
There is a huge lack of women’s presence on Boards of Directors in our businesses in Catalonia. In 70% of Catalan companies, there are no women in Senior Management roles, according to a 2017 Study by ODEE, Barcelona Chamber of Commerce.
Catalan companies are missing out on female talent, which must be valued and recognized and put to good use. We will organize campaigns to stimulate the talent of women in our businesses for more women to reach Senior Management and Board positions.
