The distinction was bestowed by Mr. Alfonso Navarrete –Mexico’s Minister of Labor− to representatives of the 449 private and public companies and institutions from varied industries and sectors that achieved this outstanding milestone.
“KidZania prides itself of being an inclusive company since its foundation, we are a socially responsible corporation and our inclusion policy dictates that at least 5% of our team should be comprised by vulnerable populations such as people with disabilities and/or elderly citizens. The distinction that the Mexican Government recognizes us with today makes us very proud and I want to share this pride with the over 8,500 collaborators KidZania has around the world”.
