The Chairman of the Exchange remarked the Santiago Exchange commitment to promote the diversity and inclusion at the high level management and workforce of companies as part of the best practices of corporate governance, as well as the pursuit of the sustainable development of the companies´ businesses and of the Chilean Capital Markets. “We actively promote the incorporation of women professionals in the leadership of companies to bring different opinions, backgrounds and perspectives to contribute to better decision-making process”, said.
