We are committed to gender equality and equity, and our main goal is to make the most of all the talent available on the market and to fight inequality between men and women.
We launch initiatives that allow us to tell stories like those of #WomenWithEnergy, professionals that break molds and stereotypes.
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.
51% of our new hires in 2020 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 37% of all Repsol employees worldwide in 2020.
41% of all women that make up our workforce hold management positions.
Our commitment to gender equality can be seen in our participation in a variety of institutional initiatives.

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.
