IBERDROLA's Policy for the Reconciliation of Personal and Working Life and Equal Opportunity [PDF] promotes undertaking to equality between men and women in matters of:
- Access to employment

In 2009, IBERDROLA adopted the Equality Plan, with which we have firmly established ourselves at the vanguard of corporate fabric by including measures to safeguard victims of gender-related violence.

|FLEXIBLE REDUCTION OF THE WORK DAY||Five hours daily until the first birthday of employee’s child, without this affecting the employee’s salary.|
|MATERNITY/PATERNITY LEAVES||With full salary|
|PAID LEAVE||One fortnight paid leave before the expected date of childbirth|
|NURSING WORK DAYS||Additional 45 minute reduction in work day|
|WORK DAY REDUCTION LEGAL GUARDIANS||Two-year extension in the child’s age (from 8 to 12), which exceeds pertinent legislation currently in force by four years|
