Monica Cerutti, an expert in social inclusion policies and gender issues, who curated the Community of Practice, was joined by Alessandra Brogliatto, head of the Research, Development, Training, and Equal Opportunities Sector for Confcooperative Piemonte Nord.

Additionally, in the second part of the afternoon, two ecosystem partners shared their certification journey: Synesthesia, a benefit corporation specializing in strategic consulting, software development, marketing services, ecommerce, training, and event organization, and Cooperativa Esserci, which has been dedicated to the inclusion of vulnerable individuals for over 30 years.

Both organizations showcased their corporate welfare models, the successes they achieved, and the challenges faced during the certification process.

The meeting was held at Pink Coworking, a welcoming environment where women of all ages, orientations, and backgrounds work together. The coworking space offers an alternative to the isolation of home-based smart working and fosters the creation of new alliances and professional opportunities. This space is a project of the Acca association, supported by the Circoscrizione 1 of the City of Turin.

The meeting was part of the Community of Practice project, supported by the Chamber of Commerce of Turin and the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation.
