Our CEO resigns
 

March 8th, International´s Women Day

Women's week is a project in which the Adecco Foundation puts the spotlight on the social and occupational integration of women who are at risk of social exclusion.

Although we work on this issue throughout the year, we use International Women's Day as a way to redouble our efforts and our commitment, generating social dialogue and being the driving force for change in society.

Prejudice and discrimination towards women has put 50% (50.94%) of the Spanish population at a disadvantage; that is to say, we are failing to take full advantage of half the talent in our country.

Occupation gaps, wage gaps, leadership gaps, gaps in job security – these are all statistics that we want to balance out. In addition to all this, we cannot forget gender-based violence, family care issues, human trafficking, and harassment.

Schools for employment, specialized attention, company dialogue and reflection, and social awareness are some of our proposals so that, with everyone's commitment, we can stop giving labels and start giving talent. #PonleTalento

The speechOur CEO resigns

Good morning,

I am writing to inform you that I do not want to run this company if you consider me a fee or a percentage.

I want to be appreciated for my talent, because gender should not define professions or positions. I also want to earn the same amount as a man, and not to be measured in terms of "90/60/90".

I do not want to die every day after a beating, as a victim of abuse... nor do I want to head the line at the unemployment office, nor be the main player in a company's work/family life conciliation program. I do not want my body to be a commodity for any business; nor do I want insecurity, poverty, and vulnerability to have a female face.

I do not want to be pressured into being a good mother, daughter, wife, and worker. I want to be able to choose. It’s normal not to be perfect.

I do not want men to be seen as if they were “on the other side,” but I want equality to be a value for companies and a right to be defended by all people who believe in diversity and talent without labels.

Now is the time, “give talent.”
