    Last Monday – 22, for the third consecutive year, the Norberto Odebrecht Foundation received the Ethnic-Racial Diversity Seal, awarded by the Municipal Reparations Secretariat – Semur – Program. The initiative aims to recognize actions to promote racial equity by public, private and civil society organizations in Salvador – BA.

    Awarded in the Recognition category, the Foundation was represented by Murilo Dantas, from the People and Finance department, and Nubia Almeida, from the Administrative department, during the award ceremony. According to Murilo, receiving this certificate legitimizes the institution’s work in favor of social transformation through valuing diversity. “Today we had conversations in which we were able to delve deeper into the fight against racism and how we can continue to act to promote greater equality of opportunities and rights,” she says.

    The Seal was awarded by the Secretary for Reparations herself, Ivete Sacramento, at a meeting that was also attended by Eurico Alcântara, Coordinator of Cross-Cutting Actions, and Jaqueline Sobral, Program Supervisor. “The Diversity Seal is a stimulus to sensitize organizations to develop actions and policies that work on racial issues. We must always remain vigilant in order to change the behaviors and prejudices that permeate our culture, which is structurally racist,” emphasized Jaqueline.

    A public policy instituted in 2007 by Decree No. 17,918, the Seal is renewed annually if the organizations that have already been awarded it have followed through on their previously established commitments to combat racism in the workplace. “This recognition, for yet another year, symbolizes what the Foundation already practices on a daily basis,” says Nubia Almeida, the institution’s longest-serving member, where she has worked for 25 years. “Receiving the Diversity Seal, even more so as a black woman, is something extremely remarkable and impactful for me,” she concludes.
