Fundación Integra recognises Repsol volunteers

Fundación Integra has rewarded Fundación Repsol's volunteering programme. Each year, around 10 Repsol volunteers take part in Fundación Integra's initiatives to improve the employability of vulnerable groups.

During the annual Integra Voluntaria meeting, Fundación Integra recognised the work of six volunteers and 12 organizations that stood out for their efforts to promote volunteering: Accenture, Mary Kay, Garrigues, Endesa, Indra, Alsa, Bankia, Fundación Repsol, UBS, Línea Directa, BBVA, and Banco Santander.

Ignacio Egea, Vice Chairman of Fundación Repsol, collected the award and took the opportunity to thank the volunteers for their hard work, adding that "their dedication, enthusiasm, and motivation are without a doubt what drives our Social Energy".

Carmen Casero, Director-General of Self-Employment, Social Economy and Corporate Social Responsibility of the Ministry of Employment and Social Security; Ana Botella, President of Fundación Integra; David Menéndez, Bankia's head of Corporate Social Responsibility; and Ana Muñoz de Dios, Managing Director of Fundación Integra also attended the event.

The partnership between Fundación Repsol and Fundación Integra dates back to 2013 with the Women moving toward employment project, a comprehensive training and employment-oriented guidance programme for women who have been victims of gender-based violence. Repsol volunteers began participating in this initiative in 2014, sharing their knowledge and experience through training and guidance sessions on different topics, with the aim of improving the employability of this group. Since then, around 10 volunteers have participated in each edition of this activity, helping 50 women to start a new life.
