Radiall Obregón is committed to empowering women. That is why they started Con M de Mujer, an ongoing initiative that promotes women empowerment (below, left). Throughout the year, female employees have the opportunity to attend on-site workshops that talk through topics such as women's health, domestic violence and personal and professional development. These workshops equip women with tools to improve their knowledge, self-esteem and quality of life.
In order to do their part in taking care of the planet, the Destination Green team at Radiall Obregón started an initiative called Planta un Arbol (below, right). The group of 30 employees and their families is dedicated to planting 1,000 new trees in Obregón. In 2019, they visited a local school to educate students on environmental protection. Together with the students, they planted 50 trees on the school property.
