The third edition of the “Call for Europe” initiative of UniCredit and its Foundation aimed at supporting non-profit organisations focused on children in the 12 different European countries where the Group operates, has come to an end.
52 social projects dedicated to young people and children have been rewarded with a total amount of 500,000 euros, distributed across four specific focus areas: education (238,500 euros), social inclusion (104,500 euros), disability (94,000 euros) and health (63,000 euros).
Silvia Cappellini, Head of UniCredit Foundation, said: “UniCredit Foundation has a long history of supporting our communities in the different countries of our Bank, which we continue to build on and enhance through dedicated activities. Thanks to the “Call for Europe” initiative, we have been able to support 144 projects for children and young people in our different European countries over the last three years with a total of 1,360,000 euros. This is testament to our continued strong social commitment and high attention to the needs of all our communities with a special focus on supporting children and young people to foster inclusion and build a more sustainable, better society for all”.
The third edition of the “Call for Europe” initiative was launched in November 2021 inviting the Group's local banks to identify and share a short-list of up to five outstanding social projects of particular local relevance focused on children and young people. A dedicated Committee appointed by the UniCredit Foundation was responsible for selecting the winning initiatives across 12 Group countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Each country was awarded 40,000 euros to be divided among the winning local projects. Furthermore, additional 20,000 euros were awarded by the Committee to a further select number of projects deemed as particularly impactful.

Empowering women to grow within UniCredit
17 May 2022
We want to support and enable more women to build long and satisfying careers within at UnICredit, and we are especially working to increase the representation of women at the management level.
To bring our efforts to life, we take a multifaceted approach – investing in a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment, designing the Global Job and Skill Framework, and promoting our female talent and leadership within our Group and beyond.
Our diverse offer of development programmes for female colleagues stands as a testimony to this commitment. A strong example of this is the WeFly Programme – an international and cross-company women's mentoring program by Valore D and sponsored by UniCredit.
Beginning today, May 16, the second edition of the initiative is launched, with 162 participants of 19 different nationalities, coming from 47 companies worldwide.
We are thrilled to announce that a total of 60 UniCredit colleagues will be participating in the WeFly programme: 30 women who will join as mentees and 30 men and women who will participate as mentors.
Valore D is the first association of companies in Italy which since 2009 has been committed to building a professional world without discrimination, in which gender equality and the culture of inclusion support the innovation, progress and growth of organizations and of Italy.
The Wefly® programme will engage women who are middle managers to support them in exploring more international careers. Through cross-country mentoring, participants will experience different professional cultures, helping to enrich their management styles.
The match between mentors and mentees is defined through a tailor-made interview process to ensure the best matches in terms of personal attitudes and professional goals.
Over the next 7 months, each mentee will be paired with a mentor, where they will have the opportunity to grow their professional network, become familiarised with various cultures, strengthen their ambition to further achieve professional success, and empower future generations of colleagues.
Commenting on the program, Siobhan Mc Donagh, Head of Group People & Culture said: “UniCredit remains wholly committed to providing the best professional growth opportunities to women at all levels across the Group. As testament to this, we are continuing to make progress in our ambition to increase female representation in management roles. We are proud to work with Valore D, a respected leader in promoting gender balance. Together, we will provide additional career support to all female managers to determine their strengths, increase their know-how and further build on these skills – because when you do what you enjoy, it shows. For many years, our company has invested in internal mentoring and coaching, and we will continue to do so with this ambition in mind.”
Paola Mascaro, President at Valore D commented: "Even today, many women do not take on new career challenges, or explore international careers, often because of a lack of confidence in their self. The value of a cross-company experience such as WeFly lies in the opportunity for women to confront with different cultures and learn from different management style, a fundamental step to build a solid career path for tomorrows D&I leadership”.

AVSI opens #HelpUkraine hub in Milan with the support of UniCredit
16 May 2022
The hub is based in Viale Monza 79, Milan.
The launch event was attended by Anna Scavuzzo, Deputy Mayor of Milan; Natalino Manno from the Prefect of Milan; Giuseppe Petronzi, Questore of Milan; Siobhan McDonagh, Head of Group People and Culture at UniCredit; Stanislav Plakhotnyi, Consul of Ukraine in Milan; Giampaolo Silvestri, Secretary General of AVSI and Patrizia Savi, President of AVSI
Today the #HelpUkraine hub was opened in Viale Monza 79, Milan, thanks to the joint efforts of a number of organisations managed by Fondazione AVSI, including Associazione Famiglie per l'Accoglienza, Associazione San Martino, Fondazione Franco Verga, Associazione I Bambini dell'Est, the Ukrainian NGO Emmaus, Medici in Famiglia Impresa Sociale, and the help of UniCredit. The project combines service innovation and community involvement in a space provided on free loan by UniCredit.
The hub was set up to respond to the needs of a growing number of Ukrainian refugees arriving to Milan, pooling resources to coordinate and centralise support services as well as connect the many Italians wishing to help with those in need. In addition to providing the space for the hub, all UniCredit Group employees in Italy have the chance for active involvement in this initiative through volunteering.
Andrea Orcel, CEO of UniCredit, said: “I am incredibly proud that we are able to offer our help to the refugees displaced by the war in Ukraine in a specific and concrete way that allows us to also further support the unity and wellbeing of our whole community in Italy. I truly believe that our role and responsibility as a bank go far beyond lending. In the face of the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Europe right now, it is critical for us to fulfil our social function responding to the urgent needs of our communities, always empowering their progress and importantly allowing our people to actively contribute to this effort.”
“After intervening promptly on the borders of Ukraine, in Poland and Romania, and inside Ukraine itself - explains Giampaolo Silvestri, Secretary General of AVSI Foundation - we realised that we couldn't fail to address the huge demand for help in our country, and to match it to the great wave of solidarity shown by so many families. This led to the idea of networking, involving different actors, to coordinate and join forces to better respond to this new challenge.”
The hub aims to both, facilitate the reception and integration of Ukrainian citizens arriving to Italy as refugees, and to support people in Italy who wish to help. More specifically, it will carry out the following activities:
- provide urgent information, guidance and assistance to Ukrainian citizens and fleeing families who have entered Italy;
- provide support in the process for obtaining a residence permit, for reporting unaccompanied minors, for registration with the SSN, vaccinations, entry into the school system, etc.;
- gather and promote a network of families who wish to offer their hospitality to Ukrainian citizens, welcoming them into their homes and / or providing flats and houses they own for this purpose;
- share relevant information to raise awareness and provide support in the process of connecting available accommodation in families and / or vacant flats / houses with refugees in need;
- provide dedicated support services to Ukrainian refugees and host families, including vouchers and psychosocial support services;
- provide support to Ukrainian children and adolescents for integration and participation at school as well as in recreational, play and sports activities;
- offer Italian language training, addressed to both minors and adults, to acquire basic Italian language skills that can facilitate the process of integration and access to schools and work;
- promote information that can support job seeking and orientation;
- offer support in obtaining medical assistance such as paediatric examinations, specialist examinations and tests for children and adults, antigenic and molecular swabs.
The hub's operational secretariat has also set up a working group with weekly meetings with Banco Building, Banco Farmaceutico, Banco Alimentare, Cdo Opere Sociali, Cdo Opere Educative, Banco Informatico Biteb, in order to share mutual updates on the Ukraine emergency and constantly liaise with the competent local and national institutions (Municipality, Prefecture, Police Headquarters, Juvenile Court, Region, etc.), and with other Third Sector entities actively involved in the local response in Italy.
