 Prioritizing Gender Diversity
Over the past several years, GTE has increased its focus on hiring women and encouraging them to participate in job opportunities and advancement through
a program entitled Empowering Women
in the Oil & Gas Industry. Colombia’s Ministry of Mining and Energy, National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) and National Mining Agency (NMA) recently recognized the importance of this program, presenting GTE with the Gender Equality Award.
GTE’s program is also aligned with Colombia’s National Development
Plan’s “Women’s Equity Pact” and international guidelines such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for Gender Equality.
Women make up 38% of GTE’s direct employees.
Women made up nearly 40% of locally based job candidates that that participated in GTE’s skills and certification training.
                        Over 300 women
took part in GTE’s certification training.
 The number of women on GTE’s workforce increased by 39% between 2018 and 2020.
Over the last year, the percentage of women working for GTE’s contractors and subcontractors increased 33%.
  GTe’s program for gender
diversity is based on four pillars:
1 Guidelines to prevent gender discrimination in selection and recruitment by contractors
2 Incentives to promote the recruitment of women throughout the supply chain
3 Training to increase the competitiveness of female employees and candidates
4 Guarantees of fair working conditions including schedules and salaries
The program creates a framework for contractors and subcontractors to encourage gender diversity within their operations and across the industry.
