In line with its goals of promoting diversity and inclusion, Vale joined the MOVER (Movement for Racial Equity). The initiative, that currently brings together 45 large companies in the country and multinationals, is an unprecedented movement, which unites competitors and partners from different sectors of the economy, to promote racial equity, in a action plan that aims to generate 10,000 new leadership positions for black people and generate opportunities for 3 million people in the coming years through practical actions.
In the document, all companies involved assume a public commitment as agents of change to collectively evolve in the anti-racist journey, purposefully, with their entire value chain, joining forces. The union of companies in MOVER relies on the active participation of CEOs in decision-making and aims to accelerate the transformation processes existing in the member companies and effectively impact society. For this, the movement seeks to add more companies interested in joining the initiative to expand actions and debates and who want to learn and share experiences and good practices and transform today for a better tomorrow.
“We intend to transform the present, where doing is better than talking and where listening is the best way to learn. To change now, movement is needed. Just as it is necessary to bring everyone together for this conversation. Racial issues are not just for black people, they are about white people too”, declare the presidents of all companies participating in the manifesto.
Guided by transversal actions, the movement involves processes, structures, cultural change and investments in qualification, training and job creation and progressive goals until 2030, through three pillars: Leadership, Employment and Training and Awareness.
3 million people benefited and 10,000 black people in leadership positions by 2030
In the Leadership pillar, MOVER's commitment is to work towards the creation of 10,000 new positions for black people in leadership positions (Supervision, coordination, management, directors and C-levels) by 2030, through inclusive recruitment and development models. In the field of Employment and Training, the planned actions aim to generate opportunities for 3 million people, by offering courses, support and networking with black entrepreneurs, among other actions. In the Awareness pillar, the Movement intends to be a platform and support tool in the goal of having a population aware of racism, with communication in the media and points of sale, in addition to developing the Communication Guide, acting throughout the value chain.
