Obdulia Rodríguez, president of Arhitac, emphasized the urgent need for gender equality in the business environment, noting that 97% of executive and managerial positions are held by men, leaving only 3% for women.

The president of the Tijuana Industry Human Resources Association (Arhitac), Obdulia Rodríguez, emphasized the urgent need to promote gender equality within the business environment. In a recent statement, Rodríguez highlighted the alarming discrepancy that persists in the distribution of executive and managerial roles. She noted that 97% of these positions are occupied by men, leaving only a modest three percent for women.

Rodríguez emphasized that this disparity not only reflects obvious inequity, but also underscores the importance of adopting policies and practices that foster truly equal inclusion at all organizational levels. She argued that women possess talent and skills critical to business success and that gender diversity in leadership positions is not only an ethical imperative, but also a smart strategy to boost innovation and competitiveness.

In this sense, Arhitac committed to actively working with companies and institutions to implement professional development programs that support and promote the advancement of women in the industry. Rodríguez concluded by highlighting that only through a genuine commitment to equal opportunities and a cultural shift towards inclusion can significant progress be made towards a more equitable and fair society and labor market for all.
