Together we ditch the labels

International Women’s Day at Sacyr

Once again Sacyr joins the International Women’s Day celebration. Gender stereotypes persist around the world, propagated by society, regardless of the level of development. These stereotypes condition our personal and professional decision-making and can have a negative impact on the opportunities and results of both men and women.

It’s time to move forward. We want to ditch the labels that constrain us and advance toward a world of equal treatment and opportunity.

We are part of the UN campaign #HeForShe, uniting people with a vision of a world committed to equality for both men and women.


Did you know…?


  • Girls begin to feel less intelligent than boys from the age of 6 (“Gender stereotypes about intellectual ability emerge early and influence children´s interests” – Science, 2017).
  • UNESCO warns that women are underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields, at less than 29%.
  • The presence of women in textbooks barely reaches 7.6%.


We also champion Sacyr’s commitment to equal-opportunity education from within and, among other initiatives, we collaborate with the Junior Achievement Worldwide, a non-profit organization that promotes work-readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship among children and young adults. We already have several volunteers to promote STEM careers within the Orienta-T program for ages 13-17.

Sacyr currently has a Corporate Diversity Plan that brings together a series of initiatives that represent the company’s commitment to the diversity of the people in the areas where we operate.

As a reflection of our commitment, we have signed the Diversity Charter.
