Equality Program | MAJE

Equality is the cornerstone of quality education, and only when real equality has been achieved will we find ourselves in the ideal scenario for the full realization of human potential. To this end, equality must also go hand in hand with sustainability and technology, because only with these objectives in mind (equality, sustainability and technological progress) will we leave future generations a legacy that is up to the task.

Undoubtedly, there is currently a clear (and almost absolute) consensus on the need to move forward in terms of sustainability (proof of this are the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda). The fact that educational institutions are making an effort to promote diversity and sustainability in their classrooms is very positive, not only because of the social commitment that this demonstrates, but also in academic terms (both for the image of the institution and for the training of students, who must acquire transversal competencies in order to develop and succeed in the labor market of a globalized world). These transversal competencies include the understanding and internalization of the culture of respect, tolerance and coexistence among world citizens of different culture, faith or ethnicity.

The Master in Business Legal Advice (MAJE) and Women in a Legal World, a non-profit association founded with the commitment to gender equality and with the aim of bringing about a change in society, decided to create the course "Sustainability and Technology" after the success of our Legal Leadership Development program, in collaboration with Harvard Law School and Banco Santander. It addressed sustainability, Agenda 2030, geopolitics, leadership and other topical issues.

The fact that MAJE has decided to have the "Sustainability and Technology" course taught in its classrooms is a declaration of intent in terms of its ambition to be a partner and driver of an economic and social paradigm shift marked by diversity, equality, inclusion and sustainability, as well as its commitment to train the leaders of tomorrow by fostering a critical, transformative and sustainable vision, both in the field of strategic management and in the ethical and moral sphere, imbuing the future with the principles and values that will enable the development of a more sustainable and enduring production model over time; In other words, a model that generates social, environmental, technological and economic value.

Furthermore, the fact that the course will be taught in alliance with the Mentoring Program demonstrates the commitment of MAJE to achieve this change in society, being aware that it is necessary that the commitment is unanimous, and that sustainable and responsible educational initiatives are carried out, relying on diverse, innovative and transformative teams, which accompany students in the process of coming to feel part of the same vision and purpose. Fortunately, more and more companies are acting in line with these principles, but this is not enough and we must continue to work and collaborate at all levels to promote this change in the legal sector in particular and in society in general: it is precisely at this point that the added value of the "Sustainability and Technology" course becomes relevant.

Of course, we cannot forget that technology is a great ally in achieving this goal, so only by combining sustainability and technology in the same educational program will we have the opportunity to correct the gaps that exist at all socioeconomic levels. Let us seize this opportunity and commit to a future in which all types of talent have a place and feel included.

The MAJE Mentoring Program in collaboration with Women in a Legal World is a challenge aimed at developing the potential of MAJE students.

The project is based on learning through the experience of the Mentors within a process in which a personal and trusting relationship is established that encourages and motivates the student, according to his or her needs, with a view to his or her professional projection.

The objectives of Mentoring are, among others:

  • Accompany the professional development process through the support of a more experienced person.
  • Transfer of know-how: capitalize on the accumulated knowledge of people who are in professional practice and who can contribute their experiences as a reference and guide on the road to labor market insertion.
  • Generate valuable professional and personal links between mentors and mentees.

General Basis

The training manager receives the applications from the mentors and coordinates with the person responsible in each university center the allocation of mentees to each one.

Contact may be made by e-mail: /

A minimum duration of 6 months is proposed, during which at least 2 contact sessions will be held.

In the first contact, mentor and mentee will mutually agree on the schedule of sessions and their respective expectations of the mentoring program. In addition, aspects such as the availability of the mentor between sessions, the form and place for contacts, the type of content to be covered will be agreed upon.

The mentor must decide and make clear to the mentee the level of availability and the amount of information he/she can provide. At no time is the mentor under any obligation to offer you a job or introduce you to other contacts.

Regarding the meeting place, although participants are free to decide where to meet, the collaborating university will make its facilities available to them.

Results will be collected through Professional Mentor evaluation and satisfaction questionnaires and Mentee evaluation and satisfaction questionnaires.

Acknowledgements for participation in the Program:

  • Mentor: diploma stating your participation as a Professional Mentor of students. 
  • Mentee: diploma stating your participation as a Mentee.
