8th March Committee
The 8th March Committee is a work group set up to explore the options open to professional women in the sector to deal with issues related to sexual harassment and gender discrimination in their work. This core group sets out to create and provide tools in the form of series of activities, talks, mutual support groups, anti-harassment protocols and other materials.
Iris Baeza, Jolita Blyzyte, Maria Coll, Eva Rosell, Neus Sanchis and Secretariat of APTIC.
APTIC continues to grow and is active on more and more fronts. A new commission was set up, on the initiative of several members who wanted to work more closely with the association. We have called it the CREA committee (crea means ‘create’ in both Catalan and Spanish) and its members are people who bring with them a fresh point of view and new approaches.
It aims to be an incubator for ideas for a constantly-changing association, to carry on innovating and offering better services to its members and to the profession in general.
