ESPM Human Rights Committee

Respect for diversity, culture of peace, and human rights.

Based on values such as ethics, freedom of expression, human and social growth, and diversity, ESPM seeks to train leaders capable of transforming business and contributing to the country's development.

In 2017, when the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Citizenship launched the University Pact for the Promotion of Respect for Diversity, a Culture of Peace and Human Rights, ESPM became a signatory and formed the ESPM Human Rights Committee, which began to systematize the initiatives developed to promote these issues in the various areas of the School.

In the Committee's first year 198 initiatives were inventoried, demonstrating ESPM's interest in the debate and promotion of diversity, culture of peace and human rights. Even with the discontinuity of the Pact, between 2018 and 2019, the School expanded its initiatives to promote human rights and remains committed to overcoming violence, prejudice and discrimination in the university environment.
