What is Her Safe Place?

Her Safe Place guarantees a safe environment for women as a minimum standard necessary to boost the human and business potential of companies.

Safe Environments for Women: Spaces and collective culture that promote physical and psychosocial safety and well-being. They are created by the community of collaborators, clients and visitors that consider the needs of men and women equally within an environment.

We are a Mexican venture with a global vision and an innovative methodology based on national and international references. Systematically, this certification incorporates criteria, policies and mechanisms to promote safe environments for women.

“Gender equality is a matter of effectiveness in the development, and not an issue of being politically correct or kind towards women.”

(World Bank, 2002)
