The defence of equality is part of the mission, vision and values of Fundación ONCE, in line with sustainable development goal (SDG) 5 on gender equality. Thus, the principles of equal opportunities, non-discrimination and positive action permeate all our actions transversally, inspiring our work in the Observatory of Equal Opportunities of the ONCE Social Group, to which the Fundación ONCE belongs.
Since our inception, we have encouraged programmes to promote equal treatment and opportunities between women and men, both internally and externally. In addition, we apply an intersectional approach, addressing the challenges faced by women with disabilities as a result of multiple discrimination, and pay special attention to women with disabilities who are victims of gender-based violence.
We carry out numerous and varied initiatives every year in this area, many of them in partnership with other entities with which we share the same objectives and concerns in relation to equality between women and men.
In addition, beyond gender equality, we adopt a broad vision of diversity (which includes from the outset people with disabilities themselves, both men and women), integrating in our work other dimensions such as equality and non-discrimination against age or LGTBI population, always encouraging diverse talent, and enhancing enriching workspaces free of any type of discrimination.
