About us

Valore D
More diversity, more talent, more business

Valore D was founded in 2009 by twelve managers from twelve highly-respected companies: AstraZeneca, Enel, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, IKEA, Intesa Sanpaolo, Luxottica, McKinsey & Company, Microsoft, Standard & Poor’s, UniCredit and Vodafone.

Today, the association has over 180 member companies in Italy with more than 1.5 million employees. These numbers illustrate Valore D’s tireless commitment to promoting gender balance and an inclusive culture in organisations and across the country. We know for a fact that these factors, when foregrounded, produce innovation, competition and therefore growth.

While achieving these results presents many challenges, Valore D’s integrated approach is a winning one thanks to its ability to provide businesses with effective tools and to establish a dialogue among companies and with institutions.

Not by chance, our data shows that the dialogue among companies encourages mutual growth and optimises employee potential: 50% of the managers who have participated in Valore D’s mentorship programmes have experienced career progress within 18 months, while 87% of our member companies have launched corporate wellbeing plans to promote wellness among employees and their families. Moreover, 74% recognised the fundamental role played by Valore D in implementing an effective inclusion plan within their companies.

Team

At Valore D people are our most valuable asset and diversity is the thread that brings us together. We are a team of people with different experiences, backgrounds, skills, levels of seniority, personalities and attitudes. Each of us collaborates with the association in different ways and some have more time available than others, but we share the passion for the issues that we tackle every day with a planning-based approach, leveraging the entrepreneurial spirit that makes us stand out from the rest as well as our exceptional speed of execution.

We love what we do!
