Diversity Commitment

At Galp, we promote equality of opportunity and treatment of people regardless of gender, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation, and race. We believe that equality creates value and strengthens a Group culture.

Galp gave me the opportunity to work daily side by side with extraordinary professionals, who contributed every day to my personal and professional growth. The easy integration into the company, with numerous different challenges and a fantastic team environment is the reason why I wake up every day with huge energy to work, and energy creates energy! Indeed, the company strongly bets on its employees and understands that people are its most valuable resource. I joined Galp in December 2016, through a curricular internship in the HR Development area and nowadays I am a trainee in the Loyalty and Business Development area, where every day I grow a little more. My (still short) career within Galp has been exceeding my expectations and allows me to say that I am part of a privileged group of people who work daily for the success and good results.
