Cattaneo Zanetto Pomposo & Co. has simultaneously established a Steering Committee, which will have the task of managing issues relating to gender equality, and appointed a Manager who will monitor the effectiveness of the management system. With a view to continuous improvement, a strategic plan was then developed which includes, among the various actions, training sessions aimed at all employees to enhance differences, gender equality and inclusion.

“We are proud to have obtained the certification for Gender Equality, a path undertaken to reiterate a commitment that we have always felt is very strong and which starts from afar. Since its foundation, in fact, Cattaneo Zanetto Pomposo & Co. has been based on people, on their professional skills and on transparency, values that we never wanted to give up, which we found in Excellera, and which today are even more the compass that guides our profession and the development of our business.
