Fondazione Libellula is the Foundation through which Zeta Service has set up Network Libellula, a group of companies joining forces against violence on women and gender discrimination. The purpose of the Foundation is to act on a cultural level to counteract and prevent these situations.
More specifically, through Network Libellula, it aims to start all this from the workplace, by means of projects and activities dedicated to male and female staff, by encouraging empowerment, sharing a culture of respect, deconstructing stereotypes and through a careful study of language.
We follow the spirit of Fondazione Libellula, being convinced that our company is more than just a workplace; it is also a venue for creating culture, through values and messages which are passed on to other people even beyond the corporate setting. This is why we have chosen to talk about gender discrimination and be committed to providing a virtuous workplace, which breeds sensitivity and courage; we have chosen to do this through the competence and expertise of Fondazione Libellula.
“Being the only woman” is still a very common experience on the workplace: one out of five women say that they are often the only, or one of very few female staff members in the room; this is twice as frequent in senior positions or technical roles. Talent, performance and aptitude are the only factors that count here. This is our company. These are our people. This is why we have chosen to join the Fondazione Libellula network.
