Gender equity and placing value on human diversity


The Bank’s commitment to placing value on diversity and the struggle against discrimination in all forms is expressed in the BNDES System’s Code of Ethics.

Since 2007, the Gender and Diversity Workgroup has based its initiatives on two strategic operational fronts: 

  • Placing value on human diversity (issues involving gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and special needs); and
  • Eliminating all forms of discrimination in terms of access, remuneration, ascension and permanence on the job.
