Again this year, Generali joins Pride Month celebrations to support the rights of the LGBTQI+ community, but with something new: in addition to Milano Pride, in which Generali already took part in 2023 as a sponsor, this year the Group will join parades organized in other countries:

  • 22 June - Munich
  • 29 June - Paris
  • 29 June - Milan
  • 13 July - Luxembourg

This participation demonstrates Generali’s strong and ongoing commitment, which is also testified by the ever greater involvement of Group employees in the countries and Business Units in which it operates.

With its participation in the 2024 Pride Month celebrations, Generali reaffirms its commitment to promoting the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, which are among the priorities of the Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth strategy.

In Generali, “Pride” is first of all about inclusion, creating a work environment in which everyone feels safe, comfortable, and free to be themselves, and therefore valued, respected, and able to unleash their full potential to contribute with their talents to driving the Group's innovation, growth and success.

At the same time, the concept of "Pride" for Generali is about the cultural transformation journey that the Group has embarked on together with the LGBTQI+ people and allies of We Proud, Generali's first LGBTQI+ Employee Resource Group (ERG) dedicated to these issues.

The participation in Pride Month celebrations and parades in various countries further confirm the commitment of the Group and its people to equality and freedom of expression.

In this context, a key role is played by We Proud, which gathers members of the LGBTQI+ community and their allies to foster inclusion in the workplace, raise awareness on the challenges LGBTQI+ employees face, and improve understanding of the needs of our colleagues and customers. In so doing, it contributes to removing cultural and behavioural barriers, while promoting important projects dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion in line with the Generali People Strategy, in order to:

  • provide an environment where people can feel safe and at ease,
  • generate employee interest and awareness,
  • advance personal and professional growth,
  • foster innovation and drive social impact.

Generali’s commitment for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental pillars of the cultural transformation we promote every day to generate value for people and society. Counting on a governance of engaged business leaders, on an international community of active champions, and on a system to monitor DEI progress, Generali will continue to implement fair and meritocratic processes and procedures to make sure that all employees enjoy access to equal opportunities and are able to fully unleash their potential.
