CEMEX has recognised female leadership through Mujer Construrama (Construrama Woman), an event recently organised by CEMEX Mexico. Construrama is the largest retail building materials distribution network in Mexico, with 2100 stores. Women lead approximately 30% of the stores.
For the last decade, Mujer Construrama has recognised the effort and dedication of the women who are part of the network. This year, 320 women who are part of the network participated virtually in conferences and workshops by several business experts, female business owners, company executives, among other speakers.
By being part of the Construrama family, women have access to various training programmes, professionalisation, financing programmes, access to an online store, among other benefits, strengthening their family businesses. CEMEX reinforces its commitment to gender equality as a signatory of the UN Women and UN Global Compact’s Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). The WEPs platform serves as a guide to the private sector to promote equality in the workplace, marketplace, and the community. CEMEX believes that women’s empowerment benefits individuals and society, allowing for economic and social improvement and healthy competition.
