Continuing to make progress towards gender equality
We work every day to achieve gender equality through mentoring programs, unconscious biases training, female talent mapping to help us increase female leadership, and developing our equal opportunities plan that helps us to improve the employment status of women, among others.
41% of our permanent new hires in 2021 were women, yet more proof of Repsol's commitment to balance and equality.
At Repsol, our goal is for women to hold 35% of leadership positions.
Women represented 38% of all Repsol employees worldwide in 2021.
Writing the future together with our #WomenWithEnergy
We advocate for diversity as a source of different and innovative ideas. We believe in gender equality in order to incorporate all the available talent.
Our commitment to gender equality can be seen in our participation in a variety of institutional initiatives.
STEAM Alliance for female talent
Its core mission is to join forces, seek synergies, and promote concrete initiatives that contribute to shaping an education and training system that eliminates gender stereotypes associated with certain professions and occupations. It aims to empower women in STEAM disciplines in the early stages of their education and help close the gender gap, which enables young women to access these disciplines just as in the international context.
Equality in the Company
We have received the Igualdad en la Empresa (Equality in the Company) seal. This certification granted by Spain’s Ministry for Health, Social Services, and Equality is for companies that follow best practices and experiences to ensure equal opportunities between men and women.
Free from gender-based violence
We are part of the Spanish Institute of Women and Gender Equality's Empresas por una sociedad Libre de Violencia de Género (Companies for a society free from gender-based violence) initiative, which raises awareness of gender violence and promotes the integration of female victims into society and the workplace.
Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI)
The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) tracks performance across five pillars: Female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand.
ClosinGap is a cluster of companies that assesses the economic impact of women not having the same opportunities on society as a whole. It generates knowledge and shares best practices that help promote equal opportunities between men and women.
Punto Violeta initative
As a result of our relationship with Spain's Ministry of Equality, we joined the Punto Violeta initiative to spread the necessary information on how to act in cases of violence against women.
Our company has signed the Chárter de la Diversidad (Diversity Charter), making a public commitment to equal opportunities, inclusion, respect for diversity, and work-life balance.
A project to implement the use of anonymous résumés, which ensures that selection processes focus exclusively on a candidate's skills and does away with personal references, such as a person's name, sex, age, photo, or other personal circumstances.
More women, better companies
The aim of the Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Services, and Equality's Más mujeres, mejores empresas (More women, better companies) initiative is for women and men to play an equally important role in decision making in the business and finance world, and to provide companies, organizations, and women themselves with the tools to achieve this.
We launch initiatives that allow us to tell stories like those of #WomenWithEnergy, professionals that break molds and stereotypes.
