With the aim of continuing to work on diversity, we have established links with different organizations, such as: ADEEI, IDEL, AMIA, Forge Foundation, Diagonal and Puerta 18 Foundation. We created two internal networks of volunteers, the Disability Network and the Gender Network, which work to promote gender equality and inclusion in the Company. At the beginning of 2021, we created a Diversity Committee, reporting directly to the Ethics Committee. It receives complaints related to situations of harassment, mistreatment or violence in the workplace, based on gender or sexual orientation.
COMMITTED TO PROVIDING A DIVERSE WORK ENVIRONMENT BASED ON EQUITY, TRUST, TOLERANCE AND RESPECT, WE DEVELOPED A GUIDE FOR DEALING WITH SITUATIONS OF DISRESPECTFUL TREATMENT, HARASSMENT OR VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE, WHICH IS COMPLEMENTARY TO THE CODE OF ETHICS. ITS IMPLEMENTATION WAS CARRIED OUT THROUGH VIRTUAL MEETINGS, WHOSE PARTICIPATION WAS MANDATORY FOR ALL EMPLOYEES OF THE COMPANY.
We continue to develop our program in coordination with different organizations, in pursuit of the labor inclusion of people with disabilities. During the first half of fiscal year 2022, we continued with training for the ADEEI Association and the IDEL Foundation, and we held a workshop on the basic use of LinkedIn, with approximately 100 participants. At the end of the year, the Network supported the process of incorporating a person from ADEEI as a Contact Center Representative for the Real Estate Business. In August 2021, the LinkedIn workshop was repeated again, aimed at new members of these organizations, and during August and September 2022, workshops were held on the use of Instagram, Excel course and financial education.
A report was requested from the Commission for the Full Participation and Inclusion of People with Disabilities (COPIDIS) on accessibility for people with disabilities in the headquarters building. We are in the process of sharing this report with the Works area, in order to make the modifications indicated in the report. COPIDIS also conducted a training session with the Human Resources area, where they worked on the main characteristics to take into account when conducting job interviews with people with disabilities.
SIGN LANGUAGE TRAINING
During the fiscal year, we carried out a training for the Contact Center team and the company’s internal teams in ASL (Argentine Sign Language) together with the NGO Señas en Acción (Signs in Action). The objective was to provide an inclusive and complete service to external customers from the telepresence screens located in the shopping malls, and, at the same time, to generate awareness in all intra-company areas regarding the deaf culture, creating communication bridges and more inclusive spaces.
Some of the actions carried out during the fiscal year were as follows:
DEI ACTIONS WITH THE COMMUNITY
Entrepreneurship and gender in rural areas “MUJERES QUE DEJAN HUELLA”
“Mujeres que Dejan Huellas”. Promote “entrepreneurship” for women in rural areas near Los Pozos
Mujeres que Dejan Huellas is a social transformation project that seeks to empower, promote and strengthen the work of women, especially those entrepreneurs in vulnerable situations. During 16 meetings, we were able to help 7 women entrepreneurs, from rural areas, to think, design and create their enterprises. This is carried out through the implementation of three axes:
1. Entrepreneurship, through the teaching of tools, such as: Business Plan, Operational Plan, Financial Plan, Marketing Plan, Pitch Elevator, Taxes and Personal Finance.
2. Emotional Education, through the implementation of tools and dynamics for the development of Emotional Intelligence, Creativity, Coaching and Personal Leadership, which has a positive impact on personal finance.
3. Gender Perspective and Violence, through awareness, visibility and detection of violence, cases and types. Gender Equity. Gender and Stereotypes. Biases and Parenting. Economic Violence.
BARRIO MUGICA (CABA) job training workshop
We participated in the Job Training Workshop carried out by the Center for Entrepreneurial and Labor Development (CeDEL) of the Mugica Neighborhood in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. We have been part of four mock interviews that consist of individual meetings with neighbors of the neighborhood, with the main objective of developing the necessary skills to be able to perform optimally in a job interview. At the end, we provide feedback on their performance, both to the participant and to CeDEL, which then follows up. At the same time, this initiative is useful for us to know profiles of the neighborhood and make them part of searches that we have open at that time. So much so that, of the profiles we interviewed, we have incorporated 6 people from the neighborhood in different positions within the Company.
