Empresas Copec held 2020 Vocational Talks

The health crisis affecting the country was not an impediment to carrying out this program that the Company holds every year within the framework of its commitment to the Belén Educa Foundation.

This year, the talks were given for the first time online targeting students from First to Fourth Grade of Middle School of the Arzobispo Crescente Errázuriz School, located in Puente Alto.

The initiative was led by Empresas Copec CEO Eduardo Navarro, with the participation of Orizon’s chairman Carolina Altschwager; Alxar Corporate Affairs manager Silvia Baeza and Abastible CEO Joaquín Cruz.

During the virtual session, which was attended by 303 students, the executives shared their life stories, academic experience and professional trajectory. This, with the aim of motivating young people to continue their studies once they graduate from school. The students also had the opportunity to ask questions and express their vocational and work concerns.

“Although the pandemic did not allow us to carry out this activity in person, it seemed important to us to give continuity to this meeting that we have been holding for many years ago and that allows us to try to be a contribution to the students of Belén Educa. The vocational talks this year took place in a complex scenario in our country, not only due to the health crisis, but also in a challenging social context. Along these lines, our commitment to the Foundation, which provides quality education to the most vulnerable sectors of Chile, gains even more meaning and importance,” said Eduardo Navarro.
