MESSAGE FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER
Estibaliz Barranco Acha
“(...) it is our responsibility to shape free citizens with the same rights, capable of changing this world into a fairer, more balanced world, free from discrimination and segregation of any kind.”
“The United Nations declared 8 March the International Women's Day, a day when, all of us together, demand equal rights and opportunities between genders.
I am privileged to be leading an organization, alongside our Rector, where Equality and non-discrimination are part of our DNA. It is our deepest wish that, one day, this day will be known as the Gender, Opportunity and Rights Equality Celebration Day for all men and women, regardless of their colour, age, race, gender, financial situation, belief or religion.
As members of an International Higher Education Group, in Portugal, it is our responsibility to shape free citizens with the same rights, capable of changing this world into a fairer, more balanced world, free from discrimination and segregation of any kind. This is not a dream, but a goal towards which we work every day.
The Statement of Commitment towards Gender Equality, signed by the entire Laureate community through its Rector, Presidents of Student Associations and myself, which we share today, it another step in this long journey ahead of us.”
