Abastible makes commitment to gender equity in the liquefied gas industry
The subsidiary of Empresas Copec joined WINLPG (Women in LPG), a global network that aims to promote female inclusion in the industry.
Abastible’s representative to this global network is Paula Frigerio, Development and Innovation Manager of the subsidiary, who will serve as President of the organization during 2020-2022. Thus, as of January 1 of next year, the executive will have the responsibility of leading this important initiative worldwide.
“We believe in the talent of women to boost the development of LPG companies, the industry and the society in general. That is why we are available to carry out the actions generated by WINLPG and become worthy representatives of the value of equity and inclusion in our operation in Chile and in our subsidiaries in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru,” Frigerio says.
WINLPG is an initiative promoted by the World Association of Liquefied Gas and aims to reverse the current figures indicating that, globally, women only account for 16.5% of the workforce in the industry.
