UniCredit joins Parks - Liberi e Uguali in Italy
"Parks - Liberi e Uguali" is a non-profit organisation whose members are exclusively employers, created with the aim of helping partner companies to understand and attain maximum business opportunities deriving from the development of strategies and good practices that respect diversity.
Paolo Cornetta, Head of Group Human Capital, commented: "UniCredit is committed to becoming one of the best employers in the European financial sector by creating a positive working environment based on respect - at both professional and personal levels. We are taking concrete actions towards this goal with a focus on diversity, inclusion and ethics, and recognise that gender identity and sexual orientation are an important part of this. Being a member of Parks further demonstrates our continued investment in ensuring ethical behaviours across the company in accordance with our values."
The membership reinforces the Global Framework Agreement recently signed with UNI Global Union on the 22nd of January focused on strengthening the dialogue on human rights and fundamental labour rights, and underlines the importance given by UniCredit to gender identity and sexual orientation in the workplace.
