Many organizations have already started working to create and develop a culture that values differences and that includes the richness that exists in each person who is part of that community. Some organizations today are examples of this search and open their doors to tell us how they do it.

Many organizations that applied for this award to tell and describe in detail what are the strategies they are developing to manage diversity. They also shared those policies and actions that they carry out within their organization so that people can develop in an environment that contemplates the plurality of perspectives, capacities, opinions, ideas, preferences and gender.

Some steps are the creation of new internal policies, the implementation of programs that seek to promote, for example, the promotion of more women in decision-making positions, the incorporation of employees with disabilities, training programs, debate networks or contention on specific issues and more strategies that help achieve the larger purpose, which is to become a more inclusive society.
