Cerro Grande celebrates International Women Day

Female and male workers of the Cerro Grande Wind farm joined the celebrations for the International Women Day on the 8th of March to support equal professional opportunities and to the fight against gender-based violence.
The initiative came from the female workers of the company responsible for the wind farm construction, who decided to dress in black and wear a purple ribbon to show support for gender equality and the fight against discrimination and gender-based violence. One of the female workers said: “We wanted to contribute somehow to this movement and not ignore such an important day for all of us as women”.
They elaborated pamphlets, with information about this important day and the initiative, which were handed in to their male colleagues at the entrance of the construction site. The workers also had the opportunity of grabbing a purple ribbon or armband to join the celebration. The outcome was very positive as all the male workers joined the initiative.
