EWORA’s second honorary award is presented to the Mr. Pedro Sanchez, the President of the Spanish Government , for Spain’s “pro gender equality cabinet” that is a unique example as the world’s pioneer cabinet with the highest level of women representation and a decisive milestone in the advancement of EWORA’s overarching purpose which is to increase the number of women at decision-making levels. EWORA is very proud that the Mr. Pedro Sanchez has agreed to accept the Honorary Award.
