  • Abstract:

    The Promova Project aims to promote gender equality in access to senior management positions in private organisations. Promova helps to increase the presence of women in Portuguese business activity, in management positions of greater responsibility. In doing so, the companies, and society in general, will benefit from the diversity of perspectives in strategic corporate decision-making. The Promova Project lasts one year and is made up of various learning moments and methodologies that allow not only for the upskilling of skills, but also the development of bonds around a common cause that cuts across cultures - gender diversity. This project is sponsored by 7 major Companies (Randstad, ANA Aeroportos, EDP, Gilead, Sogrape and Sonae). The aim of the project is to identify and develop female talent with leadership potential, with the aim of promoting them to senior management positions in companies, thereby helping to close the gender equality gap. How? Encouraging women's access, as highly qualified professionals, to decision-making positions in private organisations; Strengthening participants' knowledge, tools and skills, helping them to become inspiring leaders, capable of fostering change and innovation in their organisations and also in their own careers; Building networks that enable relationships between participants, experts and guest speakers; Developing an individual plan aimed at achieving the desired professional goals and encouraging advancement to management and administrative positions; Raising awareness among companies of the advantages, particularly for their competitiveness, of promoting a greater gender balance in top management; Raising awareness among companies, individuals and society in general of the issue of "Gender Balance and Equality", in order to overcome cultural barriers that still exist in access to top management positions and functions in organisations. Results: Participants: 129; Companies: 72; Editions: 4; Women Promoted: 49%
