Dondena Gender Initiative
In the Media
Coordinator: Paola Profeta
Gender is a central concept in modern societies. The promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment is key for policymakers, and businesses are making it a higher priority.
The Dondena Gender Initiative (DGI) promotes research in all areas of gender economics, gender policies, and gender diversity management. The DGI carries out theoretical and empirical high-quality research with a strong policy impact. It is a major player in the policy and public debates on gender-related issues at the national and international levels. The DGI aims to promote gender equality in the economic and social spheres through rigorous scientific methodologies.
The DGI was launched in January 2015 with aim of collecting and promoting all types of research conducted at Bocconi University related to gender issues.
The goal of the DGI is to be a reference point for scholars worldwide who are interested in gender issues. This will be achieved through the organization of workshops, seminars, and short visiting periods for researchers interested in the analysis of gender-related economic and social phenomena, with a particular emphasis on policy implications.
The DGI collaborates with national and international institutions, policymakers, private foundations, private companies, and associations with the aim of sharing views, data, initiatives, and research related to the female labor market and women’s empowerment.
Research covers the following areas:
