The official launch of the program will take place on August 1st, at 1:00 pm, in an online meeting, when the link for registration will be made available. Anyone interested in participating in the launch event can register via the link https://forms.office.com/r/dFigtCdiLz. Classes start on August 8, in person, at the Senai unit, in Vila dos Cabanos, with four classes in the afternoon and evening shifts, lasting until November. The courses offered are Industrial Chemical Process Operator, in the afternoon, with 30 students; operator of Industrial Chemical Processes, at night, with 30 students; Industrial Electrician, in the afternoon, with 20 students; and Industrial Maintenance Mechanics, in the afternoon, with 20 students. At the end, they receive a professional qualification certification and will be able to work in the market.

This is the first phase of the program. By the end of the training, the second stage will begin, with the Education for Work trail, a set of 12 meetings, lasting one week, in which the women participating in the training will receive guidance on entering the job market and human development. Among these guidelines are: portfolio creation; digital literacy; importance of oratory; personal marketing and how to prepare for a job interview.

At the end of these two phases, those who complete the program will have the opportunity to participate in recruitments at Hydro Alunorte and Albras, through a selection process, with limited vacancies, aimed exclusively at these women working in the industry's operation. Those who are approved in the selection process, within the number of vacancies available, will join the companies.

About the Program's initiative 

“Given that women make up 52% of the Brazilian population, Hydro wants to form teams that increasingly reflect society. The implementation of this training program exclusively for the female gender is part of a series of actions that we have developed to promote diversity and equity, in line with the guidelines of our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging program”, says Nelia Lapa, director of Human Resources and Communication at Hydro.

Hydro's Recruitment and Selection team, led by the recruitment manager, Pamela Seabra, built this program in line with training, so that the supply of female professionals increases according to the balance actions that the company seeks for the year of 2025. "Our work cannot be limited only to attracting and evaluating those who apply for our vacancies, so we bring actions like this one, seeking alternatives to leverage the training of female people", evaluates Pamela.

About the Todos pelo Trabalho program

The Todos pelo Trabalho program encourages the discussion of strategies and the promotion of solutions aimed at generating employment, work and income in the region of Barcarena through the Todos pelo Trabalho network. The program has already benefited more than 250 people from Barcarena with the offer of training and professional qualification. The training is one of the actions of the program, which is supported by Hydro Alunorte and Albras, in partnership with the City Hall of Barcarena, organized by civil society and other local companies. “The program prepared a diagnosis with 2,500 people and local companies to discuss solutions for training and inserting the workforce in the county. Today, we can see how the formation of the Todos pelo Trabalho network has gained strength and has made a difference. The company is also proud to contribute to equity and diversity issues, which has also been a demand of the articulation network", highlights Milene Maués, Hydro's Partnership Manager.

Networking is one of the strategic axes of the Todos pelo Trabalho program. The other three axes are: Access to Work; Social Training and Professional Qualification; and Development and Implementation of Alternative Work and Income Strategies.

About the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging program

Hydro's Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIP in Portuguese) program is yet another company commitment to promote positive change in society. With the belief that a company needs to promote actions of inclusion, globally, Hydro aims to increase the representation of female employees to 25% by 2025. In Hydro's selection processes, all opportunities are open to people with disabilities and rehabilitated by the INSS. The program also seeks to transform the company's culture by integrating people with disabilities (PCD in Portuguese), of different races, ethnicities and LGBTQIA+.
