Bureau Veritas, a world leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC), is promoting for the third year BV Woman In Action, an initiative aimed at the career development of women who aspire to occupy leadership positions. The Group's pioneering program has already trained more than 50 professionals, achieving gender equality in over 30% of its leadership team. Over the next 12 months, participants from seven Latin American countries will participate in training, projects, mentoring and meetings with executives and experts from different areas of activity to improve their personal and professional skills.

“BV Woman in Action demonstrates the Group’s commitment to the professional development of women in leadership positions. The program promotes a greater sense of belonging among our employees and creates an environment conducive to the growth and strengthening of the female presence in prominent positions in our operations”, says Mariane Prado, Director of Communications and CSR at Bureau Veritas in Latin America.

This is Bureau Veritas' first mentoring program aimed at developing hard e soft skills of employees who aspire to be leaders in their areas of activity or in other sectors of the Group. For 12 months, a select group of women receives training on various subjects such as project management and organizational culture, to later apply this knowledge in the development of new projects for the Group. Future leaders participate in relationship meetings with participants from different Latin American countries, encouraging the exchange of experiences and encouraging cultural exchange, in addition to exposing talent to other countries. Those selected also receive individual mentoring with top executives from the Group to assist in their career development, with guidance and direction.

Created in 2021, BV Woman In Action is directly aligned with Bureau Veritas' commitment to two UN SDGs: Gender Equality and Decent Employment and Economic Growth. The first edition had the participation of 20 Brazilian collaborators. The following year, the initiative also began to train women from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. This year, professionals from seven Latin American countries will be selected.
