Labor and Human Resources Secretary Gabriel Maldonado González announced Wednesday that the date has been extended until Oct. 26 for women who are part of the workforce -- employees, entrepreneurs and human resources personnel of private companies or the government -- to participate in the “First Study of Working Women in Puerto Rico.”


“Due to the events brought about by the impact of Hurricane Fiona, it was decided to give more people the opportunity to access the questionnaire. It is important to capture the feelings of working women, their employers and Human Resource managers to develop public policy initiatives to lead to better job opportunities, wage justice, equality, inclusion, empowerment and safe work environments,” Maldonado González said in a written statement about the study, which is being developed in collaboration with the organization Women Who Lead and its CEO and founder, Frances Ríos. “Certainly, this study will chart a new path in the history of thousands of women in Puerto Rico and future generations.”


Those who wish to participate in the survey only have to fill out the questionnaire in Spanish or English found at https://reclamatupoderpr.com/. The survey is free, confidential and takes only five minutes to complete. In addition, it can be accessed from a cell phone, a computer or any other digital device.


The results of the study will be announced on Nov. 2.
