Monday, July 15, 2024 Experience

Dinner at PizzAut (with a companion)

PizzAut Via Philips, 12 - 20900 MONZA (MB)

A workplace that embraces diversity not only mirrors the diverse nature of today's society but also embodies ethical and social values. It is also a real competitive advantage for companies. However, achieving a genuinely diverse and inclusive workplace requires rethinking the very concept of Diversity & Inclusion. It should go beyond merely representing different ethnic groups, genders, or backgrounds. Instead, it should aim to value the unique differences and perspectives of each individual.
 
How to reformulate the concept of inclusion in the workplace? How to eliminate both communicative and structural barriers to promote an environment that truly values diversity?
 
In this meeting, we will propose a paradigm shift that focuses on appreciating diversity and unique abilities of each individual. Through examples of professional integration of neurodivergent individuals, participants will have the opportunity to engage with industry experts. The aim is to understand how to reformulate the concept of inclusion and conceive it as a driving force for innovation and corporate prosperity.

  • Nico Acampora, the creator and founder of PizzAut, will speak about his project, sharing its successes and future prospects. His speech, supported by data and direct experiences, will highlight the importance of the professional integration of autistic individuals and emphasize the opportunities and benefits that come with it
  • Vera Gheno, a sociolinguist and author of the book "Chiamami così. Normalità, diversità e tutte le parole nel mezzo" (2022), will be discussing the importance of inclusive language. Her talk will focus on the significance of recognizing diversity from a linguistic standpoint, by using a broad and accurate language consciously
  • Fabrizio Acanfora, a writer and popularizer, will start by questioning the concept of inclusion, then promote a culture that values the coexistence of differences. Finally, he will suggest some best practices to eliminate barriers, promote individual skills, and foster an open, respectful, and collaborative corporate climate.
Dinner will be offered to all participants at the Monza location of PizzAut following the meeting.

Please be aware that participation in this event will be limited, and registration will be accepted based on seat availability.
