Equal Opportunities Commission

The Group’s Equal Opportunities Commission is made up of representatives of both the trade union organisations and the company. 

Its tasks are: 

  • promoting positive actions to create and foster conditions of real equality between female and male workers within the Company;
  • implementing interventions and initiatives aiming at eliminating all forms of direct and indirect discrimination that hinder the full realisation of the Equal opportunities principles in the working activities; 
  • proposing formulas to conciliate the professional life with the private one, in order to favour a different organisation of work, the balance between work and family responsibilities and a better division of these responsibilities between men and women. 

In addition, the Commission can promote the implementation of a code against sexual harassment and intervene in case of direct or indirect discrimination.

In spring 2018, Cattolica in cooperation with the Equal Opportunities Commission, participated in the research project to counteract harassment and violence in the workplace entitled “Che male c’è? [What harms is there?”, financed by the Fondazione Cattolica and promoted by Coordinamento Donne Cisl in cooperation with the University of Verona.

The research, through interviews, studies, focus groups as well as an anonymous questionnaire, outlined the phenomenon and promoted awareness on the subject, which increasingly requires a cultural evolution and adequate tools, also in the work world. 

This important adherence has offered Cattolica the possibility of contributing to the promotion of dignity of the people in the workplace, especially of those in a disadvantaged condition - not necessarily tied to gender - and to thereby participate in the spread of a company culture, in which everyone can express their abilities and potential.

The results of the research were explained on 16 November 2018 at the Civic Library of Verona and will included in a publication which will be presented during 2019.
