Go Back

Bogota, Colombia – GeoPark has partnered with Best Buddies Colombia to create job opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. The partnership is part of our commitment to respecting human rights and promoting equity, inclusion and diversity.

The first “Amiga del Alma” in the GeoPark Colombia team is Valentina, who will join the Administration area. Best Buddies will lead training and awareness processes when she joins so that our whole team is part of her successful integration into GeoPark culture.

This partnership is in addition to our labor inclusion initiatives in Chile and Argentina, through which we have created job opportunities for people with disabilities and contributed to the formulation of public policies. Through our efforts in this area, we won the 2019 Inclusion Award from the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare in Chile’s Magallanes region.

We will continue to promote equality, inclusion and diversity at all levels to ensure that there are no barriers in shaping a motivating and challenging work environment with opportunities for all our employees.
