Inspiring initiatives that empower women

Reading time: 2

Today, March 8, International Women’s Day is celebrated, a date marked on the BIOAZUL calendar since for us gender equality is a fundamental pillar of our DNA as a company. For this reason, instead of launching a campaign for March 8 as in previous years, we wanted to prepare a list with some initiatives that we work with and that may be of help. All of them work to achieve a much more egalitarian, equitable and sustainable society.

These are the initiatives:

Women4Climate: is one of the world’s largest networks promoting women’s climate leadership and providing a platform to showcase women-led initiatives addressing climate breakdown. This platform offers among its activities:
