In the intricate fabric of relationships that bind businesses to their territories and the actors that compose them, a company is not merely an economic entity but also a social and cultural entity.

DEI’s initiatives are fully integrated into the strategic process for building new balances between economic growth, sustainability, well-being of individuals, and social cohesion.

The increasingly diverse profiles of company populations and potential recruitment pools have turned companies into true laboratories for coexistence — embracing genders, generations, individuals with different ethnic, cultural, religious backgrounds—and for social impact innovation.

The combination of constraints and opportunities (PNRR, ESG, Agenda 2030, etc.) urges companies to leverage the numerous advantages of a conscious approach to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” in human resource management, in the competitive repositioning of the company, and in strengthening synergies with stakeholders.

HR specialists must skillfully and consciously play their roles as strategic actors, purpose players, and generators of an additional and measurable impact, becoming “internal pioneers” of innovative policies and practices that are simultaneously consistent with the organizational culture and the company’s core values and ethics.
