Hence, joining the iGen Forum emerges as the next step towards effective equality. Not only within the organization, but also in the surrounding society at large, where inequalities between women and men still persist.
The iGen – Equality Organizations Forum was created in 2013, under invitation of CITE – The Commission for Equality in Labour and Employment. Specifically, by a group of organizations that had already demonstrated good practices in gender equality. Or expressed interest in promoting it.
Important to realize, the participation in iGen presupposes the definition and compliance of measures taken by each organization. These measures correspond to internal policies to be implemented and / or improved in the area of gender equality. At the present time, the Forum has 67 organizations, national and multinational, from the public and private sectors.
Dianova Portugal is, thus, the first social economy organization to sign an agreement to join iGen.
In the presence of the President of CITE, the Secretary of State for Citizenship and Equality, the Secretary of State for Employment and other representatives of the member organizations, Dianova undertook:
> first, under the premise “The commitment of today, the reality of tomorrow”.
> and to reinforce and demonstrate in its organizational culture, strategy and management models the principles of equality. Namely, between women and men at work and in employment.
