In order to materialise the growth path for women, gender equity commitments have been defined in recruitment, in the areas for promotions to initial management and executive roles, and in access to top management roles.
This makes it possible to define specific objectives and, through continuous surveying, evaluation and monitoring, to obtain real and shareable feedback on the company's progress in terms of gender equality, with particular reference to the following areas:
Why should we pay attention to the power of words? Because if a person is called something once, ten or a hundred times, then that becomes their social identity, regardless of whether they recognise it or not.
Having language which is broad enough so as not to offend anyone can be like an obstacle course. However, there are words that allow you to connect more quickly. Let's get to know them and switch them around.
To celebrate 4W4I, we organised the event 'Words Without Barriers' at Fastweb to reflect on the power of language together with our male and female colleagues, with the support of 2 experts, Antonio Giuseppe Malafarina, journalist, poet, founder of www.diwergo.it, director of Superando.it and Alessandro Lucchini, linguist, university lecturer, member of the Palestra della Scrittura.
It was a light-hearted event in a game show-style format. To find out how it went, check out the video.
To celebrate the 2022 edition of the event, Fastweb supported the Fightthestroke Foundation by staging the new art and social inclusion project by the Alma Rosé theatre company from Milan: 'Stabat Pater - A journey among fighting fathers' in the STEP FuturAbility District.
Through a journey interpreted by a father who is faced every day with the fragile existence of his son, the play aims to generate awareness for the audience about the world of people with disabilities and their caregivers, as well as to act as a spokesperson for the difficult stories of many fathers and parents in raising children.
For the 2021 edition, Fastweb participated in the initiative with 'Library Tutti. Normal is in the eye of the beholder.’ During the event, we discussed in an ironic and light-hearted way about what really is 'normal’, starting with the images that tell the story about the world of work in order to remember how people with their differences are unique and equal.
