Dump truck operator Myrna Cantos Galan makes a similar point. For her, promoting a circular economy to build better with less is what makes Holcim a great place to work. It is also about inspiring other women.
“I like my job and I love being part of the great Holcim family. If you have confidence, determination and dedication, you can achieve your goals,” Myrna says.
Today, 67% of Holcim Ecuador’s leadership team is female. The entire organization is motivated to make gender balance – and sustainable construction – the norm.
Reflecting on the success at Loma Alta, Holcim CEO Dolores Prado says: “The most important thing was to dream big. Then to make it a reality, we shared that dream with others. We prepared, we anticipated possible challenges, and set ourselves up for success.”
“We all look towards the future,” Cinthia says. “Where all our families, children and grandchildren will be able to live in a better world.”
