The plan consists of a set of measures aimed at achieving equal treatment and opportunities between women and men and eliminating any hint of discrimination based on sex. To this end, a series of action areas are focused on: access to employment, promotion, training, remuneration, conciliation and co-responsibility, prevention of harassment based on sex and work, protection of female victims of gender violence and communication. In all these areas, positive measures and actions are agreed to achieve the proposed objectives. In addition, a follow-up plan has been designed with periodic reviews through a specific commission to assess the scope of the measures and schedule the strategy for the following year.
