Committed to improving equal access to opportunities in the country, ENGIE Energía Perú launched its ENGIE scholarship program "+ Mujeres en Energía", an initiative that seeks to promote the participation and inclusion of young women in the energy sector through the financing of university and technical studies as well as certified training courses related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers.
This is a comprehensive program that will reach different levels of education and includes awareness-raising stages in schools, assistance for young women with economic needs and good academic performance through scholarships and mentoring, followed by support for labor market insertion. It is expected that more than 150 women will benefit from the program over the next three years.
The program began with the signing of an educational agreement with the Universidad Nacional del Centro del Perú, where in addition to the financing of studies, selected students within the Electricity career will be able to receive mentoring courses from ENGIE experts and participate in the selection processes of the internship programs of ENGIE Energía Perú, its clients or allied suppliers.
"We seek to reverse this situation. This scholarship program has a clear purpose: to increase the participation of women in the selection processes of companies, mainly in the energy sector, thus improving their professional opportunities. We expect that more than 150 women will benefit from the program, which will last three years", said Daniel Cámac, Deputy Country Manager of ENGIE in Peru.
