Marcolin Launches New “Leadership Academy” with a Focus on Women
Marcolin kicks off the “Leadership Academy”, a training project dedicated to the Company’s talents and future leaders that this year, at its third run, features a session dedicated to women’s leadership.
Launched in 2021, Marcolin’s Leadership Academy is designed to boost the convergence of individual and corporate goals. It is composed by ten meetings, each focused on the skills and values on which Marcolin’s Leadership model is based, such as openness to change, practicality, responsibility and sense of belonging.
A new entry for this year is the integration of soft skills enhancement modules dedicated to women’s leadership aiming to train leaders of tomorrow who can guide and inspire others based on the principles of equity and inclusiveness.
The future managers will work along company executives and external experts, who will provide them with the tools needed to improve the skills required to lead a team and promote innovation, culture, and change.
Sabrina Paulon, Marcolin Group HR Director, points out: “The Leadership Academy, and specifically this year’s run, is an integral part of a vision launched many years ago, whereby Marcolin is committed to promoting a culture of respecting differences. Diversity is a value for us and a driver of economic growth and development not only to the advantage of women, but of all the people involved. This is why we want our future leaders to be able to implement a model that embraces values rather than gender-related features.”
Marcolin’s vision in terms of diversity and inclusion is one of the key pillars on which its ESG corporate strategy is built. Today, 57% of the company’s employees are women, 43% of whom are senior managers. In 2022, Marcolin received the recognition “Best Employers for Women” in the eyewear industry from the German ITQF Institute, which rewarded the top 360 companies in Italy.
