Juchitán de Zaragoza, Oaxaca, March 24, 2022.- Today, Iberdrola México recognized two women from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec for their outstanding academic training and participation in several initiatives that benefit both their health centers and the community.
During the ceremony held at Iberdrola México’s facilities in Juchitán within its Casa Abierta (Open House) program, Álvaro Velázquez, Asset Management Coordinator, highlighted efforts made by Clarissa Pineda Sánchez and Monserrat Rasgado López, two Women with Energy.
“At Iberdrola México, we are aware of the importance of women in life and the impact they can have on their communities. Therefore, we are paying tribute to Clarissa and Monserrat, who elevate the name of their communities with their earnest and devotion”, he stressed.
Clarissa Pineda, 17 years old, has stood out in health and environmental issues. After the 2017 earthquakes, she has participated in efforts to aid the population and has taken part in several health initiatives from the National College of Technical Professional Education (Conalep).
In turn, Monserrat Rasgado López, 24 years old, is a geophysical engineer from the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (National Polytechnical Institute) (IPN) and recently participated in the International Petroleum Technology Conference 2022 in Saudi Arabia, where she won second place.
“I am glad to be recognized by a large company like Iberdrola México; it is nice to be noticed”, Said Clarissa during the event, while Monserrat thanked the company as well as her mother for “her unconditional support”.
Casa Abierta is a program of Iberdrola México designed to develop activities to strengthen ties with the communities where its operations are developed. This time, on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, the company recognizes women who stand out in fields such as science, culture, sports, and education.
With these actions, Iberdrola México reinforces its commitment to Oaxaca, where it not only operates four wind farms, but it also implements several social projects to help in the development of the south and southeast of the country, including the Impulso STEM (STEM Boost) program aimed at encouraging engineering study, and Urological Brigades, which perform free surgery on women with complex urological problems.
