Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
At Galp, we have the ambition to be a Human Centered Company, and for that we acknowledge our responsibility to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) by having a genuine  mindset, lived on our day-to-day, in all our processes. We believe that everyone should be celebrated and valued for who they are: not only for their potential, but also for their distinctive characteristics.

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.
