Copec receives international award for promoting women’s leadership and gender equity

The subsidiary was awarded with the first place in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion category at the Tank Storage Magazine Awards, for its initiative “Encuentro de Mujeres en la Operación” (Meeting of Women in Operations), which promotes female leadership in the company.

The award-winning project brought together 30 women working in plant operations to foster collaborative and professional networks. It also facilitated a constructive dialogue on both individual and corporate commitments to actively promote diversity at all levels of the organization.

Valentina del Fierro, head of Plants Maintenance at Copec, said that “this award represents a big step forward in our efforts to achieve greater diversity, equity and inclusion in our company. Being recognized internationally reinforces our conviction in the importance of challenging paradigms and actively working to create a more inclusive work environment.”

The seventh edition of the Tank Storage Magazine awards, a British media focused on fuel storage and energy transition, took place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and distinguished the best practices in 14 categories.
