The Construction Area of the FCC Group presents its diversity and inclusion strategy, materialized through the "Diversity Sum" initiative. A project whose objective is to accommodate a set of different talents, accepting, respecting and taking advantage of diverse perspectives through collaborative models that recognize and defend identity, uniqueness and dignity.

Diversity must be addressed in a strategic manner to integrate it into the company, creating inclusive business models that reflect the diversity and plurality of the communities in which it operates. Therefore, the Construction Area of the FCC Group is working to strengthen its diversity strategy, and is doing it internally, performing an analysis of processes and models for the selection and management of human resources; identifying unconscious biases, corporate barriers, underrepresented social groups and opportunities to generate a deep cultural change that is integrated into the corporate model of the company.

A vision of positive diversity

The "Diversity Sum" project is beginning with the dialogue with its different stakeholders and the formation of the leaders of the organization in diversity, equity and inclusion. All this, with the collaboration of the Adecco Foundation.

Since the year 2008, the Construction Area of the FCC Group launched its equality plan, the first in the sector, there are multiple and diverse measures of development and positive actions implemented, having allowed the establishment and promotion of an environment organizational respectful of diversity. Actions and programs to promote equality, diversity and labor integration have been proactively promoted to contribute to the well-being of people.
