Paula Farías joins Inditex's Social Council

Dec '13
Paula Farías, who presided Doctors Without Borders (MSF for its acronym in French) in Spain between 2006 and 2010, and Francisco Javier Sardina, professor of organic chemistry at Santiago University, have recently joined Inditex's Social Council.

Their appointment reinforces the Council's ties with Inditex's social surroundings in areas as important as its community work and the world of academics.

Born in Madrid in 1968 and a graduate of medicine, Paula Farías has been a member of MSF since 1999. Her work for this organisation has led her to participate in numerous aid missions in a wide range of situations including natural disasters, emergencies and conflicts, experiences she has set down on paper.

Francisco Javier Sardina, who was born in Santiago de Compostela in 1958, holds a PhD in organic chemistry. Throughout his career he has spearheaded a large body of research in Spain and in the US, the latter at the University of California, Berkeley and the Henry Rapoport laboratory.

Inditex’s Social Council, set up in 2002, is the body that advises Inditex on corporate social responsibility matters. It is made up of independent, non-Group individuals and institutions whose job is to formalise and institutionalise Inditex’s dialogue with the stakeholders deemed key in the civil society in which the Group pursues its business model.

In addition to Paula Farías and Francisco Javier Sardina, Inditex’s Social Advisory Board currently comprises Adela Cortina, professor of ethics at Valencia University (Spain); Alfred Vernis, faculty member at Esade Business School (Spain); Cecilia Plañiol, trustee of the Lealtad Foundation (Spain-based NGO); Ezequiel Reficco, faculty member at Universidad de los Andes (Colombia); and Víctor Viñuales, director of ECODES (Spain-based NGO).
