Despite advances in equality, behind closed doors women continue to be the main carers of the home and family. The lack of co-responsibility in household chores and in the care of children, elderly and dependent persons has a negative impact on their professional development, not to mention its consequences in terms of mental, emotional and physical health. Furthermore, the lack of measures or their enforcement by institutions hinders the possibility of reconciling personal, work, family and community life for carers, which prevents the establishment of a truly egalitarian society.

Opciónate recognises care as a fundamental pillar for the sustainability of life. For this reason, this line is committed to developing projects that value care work, whether formal or informal, to the recognition of carers, to promoting self-care and awareness in the use of time and, in short, to ensuring that caring is not a choice or a privilege, but unequivocal proof of progress as a society.
It is equally important to raise awareness about the rights of carers, so that they can exert pressure to comply with existing work-life balance regulations.

This section promotes projects with carers, especially women, but it also promotes studies, conferences, campaigns and tools, all from a rights-based, gender and intercultural, practical and experiential approach.

Main projects in the line of care, co-responsibility and conciliation

The general objective of this project is to improve the visibility, social valuation and recognition of care work and co-responsibility.
This project “Infinite Guide: Work-Life Balance for Leadership” aims to raise awareness of the importance of care, inclusive times and spaces for work-life balance, making the important role of women carers visible.
