The objective of this article is to show the practices of social responsibility in women belonging to organizations that produce differentiated coffees in a peripheral region of Colombia. In this regard, a quantitative, descriptive, and cross-sectional investigation was carried out, for which a model of its own was designed to characterize said practices from four dimensions: environment, society, values, transparency and government and labour matters. A questionnaire-type instrument with a Likert scale was applied to 430 women. Regarding the results, it was found that more than half of the women in the associations (58.7%) perceive actions related to management in the margin of social responsibility. Dimensions such as Values, Transparency and Governance (VTG), Environment (E) and Society (S), have a rating higher than 50%; however, the Labour Things (LT) dimension obtained the lowest percentage rating (47.6%).


Keywords –Social responsibility, women, coffee organizations.
