Talent attraction is higher to the companies which value diversity. Combining culturally diverse backgrounds can increase creativity in product development, and therefore, a company's capacity to meet consumer needs.
Our Diversity & Inclusion Journey
Tuesday 22 June 2021
UniCredit continues to responsibly and concretely create a positive working environment where to achieve excellence independently from sexual orientation, gender, age, race, nationality, disability and religions.
Diversity alone is not enough. Inclusion is about leveraging our differences and using them to solve problems better, become more innovative and perform more effectively. Creating an inclusive culture unlocks performance, making sure all voices are heard and companies optimise the "diversity of thoughts".
All this is why UniCredit believes in inclusion as a strategic business driver and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for our diversified workforce, where everyone with the capability to excel can do so.
Our path to pride
UniCredit’s diversity and inclusion journey started more than a decade ago with the Joint Declaration on Equal Opportunities and Non-Discrimination (2009).
We know that we still have a long road ahead and we continue to take decisive actions to constantly improve our Group-wide progress on this topic.
