- Auxiliadora López Magdaleno, the entity’s president, participated in a round table on “the combination of talent, disability and diversity”
The Magtel Foundation has participated in the seventh #ForoInsertaExpansión, a meeting within the “Employment and Diversity” cycle organized by the business newspaper Expansión, the ONCE Foundation and Inserta, aimed at advancing corporate leadership through the inclusion of workers with disabilities. Auxiliadora López Magdaleno, the entity’s president, participated in a round table on “the combination of talent, disability and diversity” alongside the wheelchair tennis player Cisco García.
Moderated by Rafael Porras, Expansión’s representative in Andalusia, the president of the Magtel Foundation spoke with the tennis player about the positive impact of employees with functional diversity on a company’s workforce and therefore its productivity. In this sense, López Magdaleno shared a few real-life Magtel examples and highlighted the work of the Magtel Foundation in supporting this group’s insertion in the job market.
Held in Seville and geared towards human resources directors, the latest #ForoInsertaExpansión featured Antonio Sanz, Deputy Minister of the President’s Office, Government and the Regional Government of Andalusia; Agustín González, General Secretary of Andalusian Employment and Freelance Work; Virginia Carcedo, General Secretary of Inserta Empleo; Jorge Ramos, Director of the San Telmo International Institute; Manuel Carlos Alba, Director of the Legal and Labor Relations Department at CEA; Francisco López, Regional Director of Andalusia’s Inserta Empleo; and Cristóbal Martín, Regional Delegate at ONCE.
The “Corporate and Diversity” cycle that houses #ForoInsertaExpansión forms part of the Social Inclusion and Social Economy Operations Program that the ONCE Foundation carries out through Inserta, with joint financing from the European Social Fund.
