Diagnóstico sobre discriminación de género en el sector de hidrocarburos
Moreno Arciniegas, Diana Catalina
This report describes in depth the results of an exercise during my internship within the educational framework of the Master of Social Studies. A situational and contextual diagnosis is made, based on a research exercise conducted by a consulting firm of anthropological projects, implemented under contract and at the request of an oil company with operations in several departments of Colombia. It should be clarified there is not baseline information, as this was not provided by the company for whom the diagnosis was made. The research was made for twenty days in three different fields, located in two different departaments. During this time, the research team lived under the same conditions as workers, using qualitative research techniques such as observation, depth interviews and focus group; this, according to the characteristics of the context and the availability of key informants. Among the most important findings provided by the information collected they are: the characterization of the relationship and speeches that reinforce gender discrimination, working conditions in terms of status and remuneration, uses and appropriation of space, all analyzed mainly from a Bourdieu approach and the relevance in this context may be the approach of the phenomenon from the perspective of decent work as proposed by the ILO (2005). From this, the fundamental aspects to consider for future structuring of intervention strategies aimed at modifying the context and the dignity of work in the field are identified, demonstrating the relevance and contribution that has applied in any training social context.
