Between 16tand 20 November, we’ll be organising 75 events and discussion opportunities for our people, aimed at disseminating and sharing awareness of diversity and inclusion. 

Over 75 events will be organised as part of the TIM Diversity Week which, starting on 16 November, will involve many local offices of  Telecom Italia. Ending on 20 November, the week will be entirely dedicated to spreading a culture of diversity and inclusion, both of which are extremely topical and sensitive aspects we feel very strongly about.

Not surprisingly, we have had a programme focused on promoting all kinds of diversity and inclusion since 2009 and, more recently, we launched a training course for our people ("Imparare dalle diversità" [Learning from diversity]), which aims to disseminate detailed knowledge about issues that can not only  improve well-being in the company and
  work-life balance but which must necessarily become a solid basis for the future development of society as a whole smart society.

TIM Diversity Week, a week for everyone

In addition to the live events taking place in Telecom Italia offices across the country, there are Web initiatives accessible via the TIM Factory. intranet. The figures for the TIM Diversity Week give an idea of the importance and value brought by the event to the structure as a whole: it includes 59 physical events18 virtual events and there are  10 cities involved with film screenings, testimonials, meetings with associations and many other activities connected with the theme of diversity. And that’s not all: there are many different opportunities to take part, including the TIM Diversity Week digital card , which anyone can use to express their opinion about diversity, and direct participation in the live events. The week in fact has a high dissemination rate thanks to the substantial informality of the events which, despite the highly critical themes, must by definition be completely accessible and make Telecom Italia feel they are complete protagonists.

The many events planned include a series of meetings with people from the world of politics, the non-profit sector and journalism.

Furthermore, as part of the Diversity Week and of the SDA Bocconi School of Management Diversity Management Lab, the annual  Diversity Day 2015 event will take place on 17 November, providing an opportunity for networking and discussion about diversity management and company performance. The various guests will also include  Telecom Italia CEO Marco Patuano.
