Diversity is Change: the second gender balance sheet of the Politecnico di Torino

The Athenaeum believes that diversity is a founding value to look to for the growth of the polytechnic community, and that the principle of gender equality is indispensable in this context: for this reason, since 2018 it has launched a journey that aims to rebalance gender in our community.

The second edition of the University Gender Report comes three years after the previous one (December 2020), which was entitled “Diversity is Excellence”: a title that emphasized the evidence gathered in the document on the performance of the female component.

On Nov. 28, 2023, the University’s second Gender Balance Sheet, entitled Diversity is Change, was presented to the Athenaeum and approved by the Academic Senate at its Nov. 15/11 meeting.
