(Press MAKRO Group) – MAKRO Group has been working on training a group of young women in the handling of heavy machinery.
They have demonstrated their talent to operate in large projects that lead to the development of the country.
The new heavy machinery operators, in addition to the fact that this experience will improve their lives, also open new opportunities in the sector where only 5% are women, and in particular, for the construction sector with only 3% participation, and focused on unskilled labor activities.
According to Julio Vallejo, regional manager of the MAKRO Group Colombia, one of the objectives is to train women to have the same job opportunities as men in the Colombian post-conflict context, in which the construction of infrastructure in historically isolated areas is one of the priorities.
The training program offered by the MAKRO Group Colombia is a reality. With the commitment to continue improving the lives of many women, offering them real and attractive opportunities for improvement in their communities and strengthening their leadership skills and example to future generations.
