The Meaning of Empowering Women in Guatemala
The term empowerment refers to measures designed to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination in people and in communities in order to enable them to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority.
It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.

Your Website Makes Claims of Being Ethical – Only Words
Many companies use the phrases ethical code and code of conduct interchangeably but it may be useful to make a distinction.
A code of ethics will start by setting out the values that underpin the code and will describe a company’s obligation to its stakeholders. The code is publicly available and addressed to anyone with an interest in the company’s activities and the way it does business.
It will include details of how the company plans to implement its values and vision, as well as guidance to staff on ethical standards and how to achieve them.
However, a code of conduct is generally addressed to and intended for employees alone. It usually sets out restrictions on behavior, and will be far more compliance or rules focused than value or principle focused.
Maybe just one person will read these terms and meanings and actually use them in business or life in general.
