IBERDROLAPIONEER IN THE PROMOTION OF WOMEN’S SPORT

The promotion of women’s sport has become an essential lever for Iberdrola and for the promotion of real equality between men and women, one of its fundamental values.

In 2016, Iberdrola became the first company to make a strong and global commitment to women’s equality and empowerment through sport.

The company currently supports 32 federations: gymnastics, triathlon, rugby, canoeing, badminton, football, handball, volleyball, hockey, table tennis, athletics, karate, boxing, surfing, ice sports, fencing, underwater activities, bowling , winter sports, weightlifting, judo, Olympic wrestling, mountaineering and climbing, swimming, skating, pelota, rowing, squash, taekwondo, tennis, archery and sailing.

It also gives its name to 32 leagues, all at the highest level, and another 100 competitions with naming rights. This action to support women in the practice of sport has meant that today, in Spain2 out of 3 federated women are supported by Iberdrola.

Closing the gender gap in sport is a commitment to women’s equality through excellence and translates into an important benchmark for girls, from their practice of physical activity and sport at all levels of the educational system, to show them that the way to a federation and a high-performance sport is also possible for them.
