“EDM is determined to reach the goal of 40% female representation in its workforce by 2030,” said Iolanda Cintura, executive director for Human Resources at EDM, where women currently represent 18.5% of employees.

The goal is established in the Gender Strategy 2021/2030 which aims to “expand the space of promotion of the actions of female workers in the company” besides encouraging and giving priority to hiring more women.

The company said that it had supported the training of women with scholarships for professional technical education, in an investment of about six million meticais (€89,000).

“EDM recognises that women can and should contribute to the success of its noble mission to produce, transport, distribute and sell good quality electricity in a sustainable way,” the company said.
