SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, June 15. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The CEO of Equality and Prevention of Gender Violence of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Priscila de León, highlights this Wednesday that there are already 92 public and private entities that are integrated under the ‘II Strategic Framework for Actions in Gender Equality Policies Tenerife Violeta 2020-2025’ after the incorporation of a new ten.
In León’s opinion, “active participation and collaborative and coordinated work are the only way to ensure that equality policies have a greater impact and effectiveness.”
Specifically, the new additions to this initiative are the Industrial Association of the Canary Islands (Asinca); the Mutual of Accidents of the Canary Islands (MAC); the Labor Action coordinator in Tenerife; the insertion company Trampolin Solidario SLU; the ONCE Foundation; the Association for the Social Reintegration of Minors Anchieta; the Association for the Dynamization of Employment and the Promotion of Coexistence (Inter-ven); the Atlantic Social Intervention Association (AISA); Daute SL Formation; and the Association of Caregivers, Relatives and Friends of People with Dependence, Alzheimer’s and other Dementias (Acufade).
Among other issues, the entities assume the commitment to promote equal treatment and opportunities, to improve the quality of life of citizens and to promote the achievement of a fair, supportive society free of inequalities and discrimination.
The ‘II METV’ is an open government model of local policies for equal opportunities between women and men, with a culture based on collaborative work to provide effective responses to the problems and inequalities identified, reinforcing organizational capacities, management and exploitation, and the sustainable use of resources, collects a note from the Cabildo.
The framework is also aligned with the 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so its impact aims to contribute not only to the improvement of Tenerife society in terms of equality, but also to the reach of SDGs.
This year, the insular network of entities participating in ‘Tenerife Violeta’ is working on 48 projects, which respond to previously detected problems and revolve around various strategic axes, such as the labor market, education, culture or youth and sports.
The network also contributes to entities coming together and putting their knowledge and experience at the service of citizens, which increases the quality of the project and its results.
