For the second year running, TIM is included in the Gender-Equality Index (GEI), the index Bloomberg uses to monitor the financial performance of the listed companies most committed to gender equality. From this year TIM Brasil will also be present, one of the 13 Brazilian companies in the ranking.
The 2022 GEI includes 418 companies from 11 sectors in 45 countries around the world, selected based on their level of transparency and performance in five areas: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies and pro-women brand.
TIM's Diversity & Inclusion program ensures equal opportunities, inclusion, enhancement and full respect of the diversity of all the people of the TIM Group. TIM's drive to promote diversity and inclusion began in 2009 with the establishment of a Diversity Board and the creation of a Diversity Manager, the first in the Italian corporate landscape. Since then, we have implemented many initiatives to give voice and visibility to our commitment. Among the most recent are the TIM Against Gender and Sexual Harassment and Bullying policy, through which we provide concrete support to those who find themselves in delicate situations at the company, the activities that are part of our Progetto Donna (Woman Project), such as the LeadHERship al femminile (Female LeadHERship) role modelling meetings, and the partnership with the Young Women Network for employees under 35. There is also 4 Weeks 4 Inclusion, the inter-company marathon launched by TIM in 2020 which, in its most recent edition, involved over 200 companies in 189 events.
With the 2021-23 sustainability plan, gender equality objectives are reinforced with the introduction of targets regarding pay-gap and managerial representation of women.
TIM Brasil's Diversity & Inclusion plan, among governance practices for gender diversity, includes the reformulation of internal policies and the internship program that recently awarded to women half of the positions in technology areas. Another pillar of the program is the partnership with the Mulheres Positivas project, founded by the entrepreneur Fabi Saad, where TIM Brasil is a leader of the movement which has united 47 companies in promoting the participation of women in the labor market, with the aim of developing careers by offering jobs, courses and mentoring.
Additionally, TIM and TIM Brasil are included in the Refinitiv's Diversity and Inclusion Top 100 and the Diversity Brand Index Top 20, which lists the brands perceived as most inclusive.
