Equal Opportunities

Our commitment to Equal Opportunities among men and women is shown by the design and creation of various actions. The main objective, one that relates to such actions, is the identification of promotional vectors for the culture of equality and the safeguarding of civil rights in the work market at large. The experience accrued in the Equal Opportunities field has enabled us to tune-up increasingly innovative methods, and to develop targeted strategies for each goal under consideration.
