Diversity and Inclusion
Our Group works by implementing fundamental principles to ensure an inclusive organisational environment
Our Group, which represents a variety of cultures, histories, abilities and skills across Italy, is working on several fronts to strengthen its commitment to diversity and inclusion by promoting various strategies and action plans to ensure an inclusive culture. This commitment stems from the awareness that diversity of gender, age, nationality and disability is a resource. Only if a fair and welcoming physical and social environment is created that allows each person the maximum expression of their potential, can concrete value be created to develop productivity and innovation.
The key rules to guarantee the dissemination of the culture of inclusion

Proud to have implemented the Ability Garden project. The first model of social innovation and labour inclusion, dedicated to people with cognitive disabilities and neurodiversity. An innovative model that allows everyone to express their uniqueness and talents, breaking down barriers between abilities and disabilities.
Erg (Employee Resource Groups)
In our Group, the value of diversity is not merely a matter of respecting differences; we are committed daily to the training and dissemination of a “culture of diversity, equity and inclusion” at personal and organisational level.
Employee Resource Groups (ERG) are key instruments within our Diversity and Inclusion journey. Teams of colleagues who through their voluntary contribution bring value in the realisation of inclusive projects with specific ideas and expertise.
The main areas of focus of our ERGs are Gender Equality, LGBTQ+, Cross-Generationality and Disability.
2022 Gender Report
The 2022 Gender Report is the first to be published by Autostrade per l'Italia and is a key tool to analyse our commitment to gender equality. It was prepared in line with the Gender Equality Plan drawn up and approved in 2022. The report describes not only the current situation, but also the Company’s transformation and trends in gender equality over the last two years. It identifies the Group's key features and highlights the future steps. Gender equality is crucial to our Company, and we strive with determination and awareness to become a benchmark in the national landscape.
