We committed. A "commitment to gender equality in the representation of knowledge". The Sella group, together with other companies, has signed a proposal launched by the M&M Association aimed at undertaking public engagement in support of gender equality at the events in which the group is summoned to take part.

What we are committed to doing is simple, but we believe, very effective. On the occasion of our participation in public events, we will find out who are the other speakers and whether a balanced representation between genders has been ensured. 

Should this balance not exist, we will strive to make proposals and, where possible, give the organizers access to opportunities and resources that can help improving gender representation at their event. All this, by taking advantage of both our networks and that of the M&M association, promoter of the commitment.

For now, we have signed the public commitment proposed by M&M together with 24 ORE Eventi, Banca Generali, Banco BPM, Credimi, Eni gas e luce, Epic, ItaliaFintech, Leonardo, Luiss Data Lab, Snam and Vodafone Italia. We are confident that other companies and institutions will soon join this list.
