The EJE&CON Awards to Genderless Talent go to IKEA, EMESA M-30, AINIA, YO DONA and the Honourable Mention Award to Antonio Garrigues
The Spanish Association of Executives and Counsellors, EJE&CON, has organised the gala for the 4th edition of the EJE&CON Awards to Genderless Talent, which has recognised the development of female talent in the categories of Large Companies, SMEs, Institutional, Media and an Honourable Mention.
The jury, composed of different well-known professionals within the different business and professional sectors and the Public Administration, has decided to give awards to IKEA, Emesa M-30, AINIA, YO DONA and the Honourable Mention to Antonio Garrigues, President of the Garrigues Foundation.
The award in the SME category has been given to Emesa M-30 for being a company that is highly committed to gender and generation diversity at all hierarchical levels in the company, with almost 40% of the members of the Steering Committee being women, in a sector where the female presence in management positions still leaves a lot to be desired.
Emesa M-30 has launched the “Helmswoman Project“, an individual development programme that has allowed for an increase in the presence of women in positions of responsibility and management, promoting and accompanying key women from the team through individual training and coaching.
Rosalía Gonzalo, CEO of Calle 30 in Madrid and Héctor Barbero, General Manager of Emesa, collected the award presented by Alex Dolmans, Partner at Hogan Lovells
