Madrid, October 28th, 2022
The association Ellas Vuelan Alto (EVA) recognises SENASA's work by awarding it the Annual Award for the Promotion of Equality, under the "Company" category. EVA awards SENASA for its commitment in supporting the launch of SENtir, the collaborative network that works to make visible the talent of the women professionals who are part of our staff, and for continuing to promote initiatives in the field of equality, co-responsibility and conciliation.
The award ceremony, collected by the President and CEO of SENASA, Andrés Arranz, together with the President of SENtir, Parisa Kochaki, took place along with the celebration of the 4th Anniversary of EVA, with its President, Gema Martín Burgo, and its Vice-President, Isabel Maestre, as masters of ceremony. Ellas Vuelan Alto is the association that brings together women professionals in the aeronautical and aerospace sector in Spain and whose main objective is to promote female talent in the sector.
During his speech at the award ceremony, the President of SENASA, Andrés Arranz, stressed that "at SENASA, we are committed to promoting and encouraging equality and co-responsibility, facilitating the conditions for the effective participation of all people in the company, as well as promoting active policies to encourage and develop the cross-cutting application of the principle of equal treatment and non-discrimination".
SENtir network, created in 2021, aims to promote values and actions to break down barriers to full equality in SENASA; to promote and inspire the exchange of experiences to enable the professional development of women in the company and in the aeronautical sector; and to make visible the hidden female talent, among its main purposes. Parisa Kochaki, President of SENtir, pointed out that the main challenge for the next stages of this network "will be to achieve greater integration of SENASA staff, for which a series of actions have been designed, such as the inspirational talks that will be held soon, which they hope will make it possible to continue to make the professional contribution of women in the aeronautical sector visible".
