The 27th annual FEDEPE awards handed out 7 awards to women who have excelled professionally in their work performance, management and business. As well, companies and media who promote women’s roles in their field were recognised at the ceremony.
Taking place at the headquarters of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) in Madrid, Spain, the ceremony was attended by high standing journalists, politicians and businesswomen.
Rosa María Menéndez, president of CSIC, said that the institution “works to promote the participation of women in science and research, in addition to enhancing their presence in careers where their representation is minimal.”
The awards were offered in a diverse variety categories:
Menéndez added that the awards “help to make (it) visible that women can assume leadership, responsibility and decision-making positions in all areas.”
The FEDEPE awards are an effective way of making women’s leadership and management visible and are a benchmark for media and the business world. Since 1989, 144 awards have been handed out to entrepreneurial, managerial women, companies, the media and institutions.
