For the second consecutive year, the Fundación Liderazgos y Organizaciones Responsables (FLOR) held the FLOR Diversity Awards in the Assembly Hall of the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, which was attended by more than 150 people, including members of companies, MeD graduates, nominated organizations, the foundation network and journalists. While the evening was hosted by Tete Coustarot and Agustina Torchio Grobocopatel.

The FLOR Diversity Awards were created with the aim of disseminating the topic and recognizing organizations that are already working on issues of inclusion and diversity so that they become beacons that illuminate other organizations and motivate them to generate true change. in society.

The award process began with the dissemination of the proposal and the call addressed to organizations that, in order to apply, had to describe those policies used to manage diversity internally that provide the people who make them up with an environment in which they can develop, that contemplate the plurality of perspectives and that, based on their implementation, they promote actions such as the promotion of more women in decision-making positions, the incorporation of employees with different abilities, and personnel regardless of their sexual orientation or age.

Then, a Jury of Honor composed of representatives of excellence from the public sector, consulting and academia such as Bernardo Kosacoff, Luis Ovsejevich, María Rigou, Andrea Grobocopatel, Daniel Arroyo, Lucas Utrera, Eugenia Botta and Alejandro Melamed met to exhaustively evaluate each case and select the winners. The entire process was audited by the international consulting firm BDO.

According to the characteristics of the nominated candidates, categories were defined, understanding the differences in scope and ways of addressing diversity in terms of size or type of organization.

The winner of the large companies category was Accenture, one of the leading companies that has been working on these aspects for many years and the special mention for NGOs went to Diagonal, which works for the labor reintegration of people over 45 years of age.

There was also the presence of a panel of graduates from the MeD Program – Women in Decision – and Gabriel Corrado served as moderator, asking them about the changes they noticed after participating in FLOR.

During the event, the president of the Andrea Grobocopatel Foundation stated that FLOR wants to generate leaders and organizations that function more responsibly every day. That they understand that in the world we are all different, we all have something to contribute, the right to work, to be heard, to be included. But it is only difficult for a leader, he needs followers, he needs institutions and organizations because they are the ones that have to group together behind common objectives to defend and align interests, to avoid transaction costs, to teach us to dialogue, to achieve consensus, to learn to overcome individual interests over “EVERYONE” to change paradigms and to make collective constructions. We want to move from speeches, from panels, to action and transformation, which is why we make programs like MeD (Women in Decision). That's why the FLOR Award promotes change. Finally, she shared the phrase of Ban Kin-moon, former Secretary of the United Nations: “Equality for women: progress for all.”

«Countries where there is more gender equality experience greater economic growth. Companies that have more female leaders achieve better performance. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women pass more laws on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence leaves no room for doubt: women's equality means progress for everyone."


Fundación FLOR expands its mission with the commitment to promote the value of diversity and inclusion.
