Calvi Group is not only an industrial synergy aimed at profit, but also the possibility of human synergy, opportunities for personal development. Pink Profiles aims to become a meeting place, an opportunity for growth. Within the framework of a corporate culture that values diversity as a growth factor, it intends to promote – among other things – female empowerment and attract female resources to the metallurgical industry, which is a historically male sector. Today and more and more in the future, thanks to the transformations brought about by Industry 4.0, the female presence in the steel industry is destined to increase progressively.
Valore D is the first association of companies that promotes gender balance and an inclusive culture for the growth of companies and the country.
Founded in 2009 from the meeting between twelve managers of twelve virtuous companies (AstraZeneca, Enel, General Electric, Johnson&Johnson, IKEA, Intesa Sanpaolo, Luxottica, McKinsey & Company, Microsoft, Standard&Poor’s, UniCredit and Vodafone), today the association has 190 member companies, which together have over 1.5 million employees and 550 billion euros in turnover.
These figures tell the story of Valore D’s constant commitment to diversity and inclusion. We are well aware, in fact, that if valued, it generates different generations and cultures and brings innovation, competitiveness and therefore growth to the company.
Read the full interview of Laura Zatti to the organization Women in Titanium, after the seminar Fundamental of Titanium and the visit to TiFast proposed, in January, by Calvi Network Pink Profiles. “In this first year, we focused on empowerment activities for our female colleagues. Today, however, we want to address the various Pink initiatives to an extended community, made up of men and women. Cause we focus on diversity in the broader sense.”
On June 20th and 21st, at the same times as the Paris Air Show, the Château at Méry-sur-Oise played host to the first Pink Profiles Meeting which was attended by around 30 women from the three companies making up the Calvi Group hot extrusion division (Cefival, Siderval and HSEP). A special moment to focus on the topic of diversity as well as a unique opportunity, for the colleagues of the business unit (involved in the aerospace industry) to visit the aerospace exhibition in Le Bourget.
In Berlin, during the annual management meeting of the group, Dr. Laura Zatti – corporate development manager of Calvi Holding – announces the color. “The future is pink,” she says, giving life to the Calvi Network Pink Profiles community. “Calvi Holding has only 98 women out of 1500 employees. Executives, very few. But more and more girls attend polytechnics. The female approach is necessary to change the world. Inspired by “Women in Titanium”, with the aim of increasing the presence of women in the group and offering opportunities for training and growth, we will create Pink Profiles, the network of the Calvi women”.
