Diversity&Inclusion: Politecnico launches New Platform to share news on actions for Inclusion of Diversities

15 December 2020


Welcome to the new virtual space where Politecnico di Milano showcases its actions towards the inclusion of all diversities: a website made to share with the corporate world the path of our university towards becoming an engine for research and innovation, attentive to the needs of society and the needs of the individual . 

“Diversity is an asset and a value. We say this as people of science (as researchers, if we did not accept diversity by nature, we would limit our ability to imagine new solutions) and also as people at the head of one of the first cultural institutions in the country" Professor Donatella Sciuto, Vice-Rector of Politecnico di Milano and Rector's Delegate for Research and Diversity.

Diversity&Inclusion is a space where Politecnico di Milano shares with external stakeholders the path of the University to promote inclusion, in line with the strategic programPolytechnic Equal Opportunities (POP).A platform where to share stories to tell the actions of the polytechnic community in favor of inclusion and diversity and also a meeting place to get to know the companies that like us believe in these values.

"The goal is also to invite companies and institutions to an ongoing collaboration on issues of social responsibility," says Federico Colombo, Director of Research, Innovation and Corporate Relations at Politecnico di Milano, "there are many companies that share with us the attention to the needs of society and the needs of the individual, and this collaboration becomes an important engine for research and innovation.

Gender, Multiculturality, Disability, LGBT+ and Wellbeing are the main themes that you will find on this platform and reflect as many strategic points in the commitment of Politecnico di Milano.

But real change is impossible without a conversation with external stakeholders. In fact, Politecnico di Milano is also the first university to become a member of the Valore D and Parks - Liberi e Uguali Associations. For all these reasons, the challenge of the new digital space Diversity & Inclusion is also to be able to tell more and more about the many activities and actions implemented to promote the inclusion of diversity and to open up to a continuous collaboration with companies, which thanks to their commitments of social responsibility are indispensable allies in the path of Politecnico to become an engine for research and innovation, attentive to the needs of society and the needs of the individual.
