  1. Terms and Definitions

CAFESCA: Specialty coffees from Chiapas SAPI de CV

Collaborator: Individual who carries out personal work in favor of CAFESCA.

Sexual harassment: As presented in Article 13 of the General Law on Women's Access to a Life Free of Violence, sexual harassment is a form of violence in which, although there is no subordination, there is an abusive exercise of power that leads to a state of helplessness and risk for the victim, regardless of whether it is carried out in one or several events.

Work Climate: Refers to the set of characteristics and conditions of a specific work environment that are perceived, felt or experienced by the people who are part of an occupational center. The work environment influences in many ways both individually and in the results of the task performed. This process is described and built from the perceptions that the subjects elaborate and transmit when interacting in the work context, in this same sense, the influence of this work experience will be fundamental in the expression of dynamics free of violence and discrimination, or by the opposite in the repetition of these.

Co-responsibility in Work, Family and Personal Life: It is a term used to establish schemes and mechanisms that allow those who work and those who employ them to agree on different measures to make work life compatible and harmonious with the family and the personal.

Institutional Culture: It is composed of a set of knowledge, principles, values, conventions, unwritten rules and practices shared by a human group. It means that there are agreements about what is right and wrong and about the goals and ends to be pursued. Mainstreaming the gender perspective implies that this institutional culture will incorporate the principle of equality between women and men, both in carrying out external activities and in all labor relations.

Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment, as contemplated in Article 13 of the General Law on Women's Access to a Life Free of Violence, is the exercise of power, in a relationship of real subordination of the victim to the aggressor in the workplace and/or school. It is expressed in verbal or physical conduct, or both, related to sexuality with a lewd connotation.

Equality: Equality constitutes the fundamental right that enables the exercise of other human rights. It is protected in international human rights instruments, in the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States and secondary regulations. It is a right and a principle at the same time, since it recognizes that all people are born equal in dignity and rights. As a principle “it recognizes in all people the freedom to develop their personal abilities and make choices without being limited by stereotypes or prejudices, so that their rights, responsibilities and opportunities do not depend on their ethnic, racial or national origin, sex, gender, age, functional diversity, social or economic condition, health conditions, pregnancy, language, religion, opinions, sexual preference or orientation, marital status or any other analogous; that is, it implies the elimination of all forms of discrimination.”

Gender Equality: Refers to the right of women and men to access, use, control and benefit from goods, services and resources of society with the same opportunities. It is understood that formal or legal equality is an important starting point but insufficient if there is no equality of opportunity to achieve substantive equality. Substantive equality refers to the need for women to have the same opportunities from the outset and to have an environment that allows them to achieve equal results.

Inclusion: Refers to measures or policies based on the principles of equity and justice, so that all people, in particular groups, groups and people historically excluded or discriminated against, enjoy equality of opportunities to access programs, goods, services or products.

Non-Discrimination: It requires that all people can fully exercise all human rights without distinction of any kind. Age, gender identity, skin color, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, ideology, economic position, health condition, among others, cannot and should not be causes for rights to be limited, hindered or restricted.

Labor Violence: is that which “is exercised by people who have a labor relationship, regardless of the hierarchical relationship. It consists of an abuse of power that damages the self-esteem, health, integrity, freedom and security of the victim, impedes their development and threatens equality.”

“The following constitutes workplace violence: the illegal refusal to hire the Victim or to respect their permanence or general working conditions; the disqualification of the work done, threats, intimidation, humiliation, exploitation and all kinds of discrimination based on gender.

  1. Narrative (Guidelines)

The commitments and values ​​assumed by the staff through the Code of Ethics, for the Policy of Gender Equality, Non-Discrimination, Inclusion, Diversity and Access to a Life Free of Violence three principles are established, which each collaborator or interested party will be responsible for adopting individually and promoting collectively.

These principles are conceptualized and specified in:

Principle of gender equality

1.- We recognise, protect and promote labor equality, non-discrimination and the exercise of the rights of women and men who work at CAFESCA regardless of their form of contract, seniority, position or geographic location.< /p>

2.- We promote an organizational culture that understands and supports equality between women and men, inside and outside CAFESCA, and that is manifested in the behaviors and attitudes of all staff, both in our work relationships and with the people with whom we interact abroad, due to the performance of our work.

3.- We respect and favor the right of people to achieve a balance in their lives; promoting co-responsibility in the work, family and personal life of our collaborators.

Principle of non-discrimination

1.- We propose that CAFESCA be a workplace free of discrimination, exclusion, mistreatment or violence due to ethnic or national origin, skin color, culture, sex, gender, age, disabilities, social, economic, health or legal status, religion, physical appearance, genetic characteristics, immigration status, pregnancy, language, opinions, sexual orientation, gender identity, sexual preferences, identity or political affiliation, marital status, family status, family responsibilities, religion, language, criminal record, or any other reason.

Discrimination will also be understood as homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, any manifestation of xenophobia, racial segregation and anti-Semitism. All collaborators and collaborators, without distinction of hierarchical level, in all their labor relations (horizontal and vertical) and in the treatment they provide to people to which CAFESCA provides any service, we are responsible for preventing, avoiding and eliminating any discriminatory treatment.

Likewise, we promote a work environment where CAFESCA values ​​of public interest, respect, respect for human rights, equality and non-discrimination, gender equity, cultural and ecological environment, cooperation and leadership prevail.

2.- We permanently promote the principle of substantive equality between women and men in the field of employment, and the fundamental right to non-discrimination in job offers, in training and professional promotion and in working conditions .

We respect, promote and protect the right of all women and men who work at CAFESCA to a life free of violence, including harassment and sexual harassment.

Principle of inclusion

  1. We promote an inclusive work culture that progressively expands opportunities for the labor participation of traditionally discriminated population groups such as people with disabilities, older adults, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex (LGBTI), indigenous and Afro-descendants.

  1. We recognize and promote decent employment, architectural accessibility and access to company assets and resources, information, communication and opportunities in an equitable manner for all staff, particularly those employees and employees with disabilities .

  1. We try to make the necessary adjustments and adaptations to the infrastructure and services, without implying a disproportionate burden, through efficient and responsible use of resources, so that any collaborator of CAFESCA, as well as any external user (interested parties), can exercise their rights, with equal opportunities as others.
