Inclusive Job Day 2019: Milan stage

Companies are increasingly aware of the advantages deriving from the adoption of inclusive policies paying attention to  diversity, in all of its declinations. An example of this trend is the increasing number of events and career days for the so-called “protected categories” and “disadvantaged” workers. For instance, the Inclusive Job Day 2019, which returns in Milan, at the Acquario Civico, on Monday May 13th , from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The event, organized by Inclusive Mindset partnering with Comune di Milano, offers to people who are part of the “protected categories” (due to disability or other reasons) and to the foreigners the opportunity to meet prestigious businesses, even having job interviews. Moreover, they will have the opportunity to attend career guidance sessions and to talk with the attending companies representatives about job opportunities and skills need to succeed in those roles.

Diversity Day: businesses meet workers

We are all aware that, despite laws and measures aiming to facilitate the inclusion of disabled people in the world of work, for the so-called “protected categories”, it can be very hard to be attractive to businesses, apart from tax facilitations. So, I’m very pleased to talk about an event whose declared goal is to help disabled people and the “protected categories” access the work market through a direct contact with hiring managers: the Diversity Day, a career day exclusively addressed to these professional profiles.

Diversity Day 2017

diversity day: the event

The event takes place, on a yearly basis, in Rome and Milan, to cover the full Italian territory. The Milan phase, this year, will take place on Tuesday, June 5th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, at the Bocconi University, in the building in via Guglielmo Röntgen 1. During the day, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the businesses representatives, but also qualified recruiters, who can provide you with tips on how to build up an effective cv or get ready for a job interview. Furthermore, deaf people will have the chance to be supported by a LIS interpreter (to reserve this service, please send an e-mail request to info@diversityday.it).

Participation in the Diversity Day is free, upon registration (you can do it here). Those who will attend the event- always supported by Jobmetoo– will have the opportunity to meet representative of many top companies, operating in various industries: from Accenture to A2A, from Bayer to Capgemini, from Generali to Intesa San Paolo, just to mention some examples (you can find the complete list on the event website).

DIVERSITY DAY: the project

But the Diversity Day doesn’t end with the career days. The project goal is pursued all the year long, through a series of integrated services, ranging from the issue of job opportunities addressed to disabled people and protected categories to tutorship, from support for bureaucratic compliance and tax facilitations to financed training.

Diversity Day project

An important initiative, then. We hope it can grow, involving more and more companies and efficiently supporting the work inclusion of disabled people, not only in “low” positions, but also in roles requiring bigger responsibility. Because disability doesn’t necessarily mean inability and access to qualified and qualifying jobs is essential, as we’ve often stated, for the effective social inclusion of people with disability.

So, update your CVs, register to the Diversity Day and good luck!

Accessibility: Kimap maps Bologna too

We already talked, some time ago, about Kimap, the digital ecosystem developed by Kinoa srl aiming to map the architectonical barriers in our cities, paying particular attention to the accessibility for people with a motoric disability. After Florence, now it was Bologna’s turn. Here, the mapping process involved the streets that, starting from the Central Station, lead to the most important monuments and the centre of the city and the university area. Overall, the Kimappers mapped the accessibility of about 8 km of streets daily traversed by tourists and citizens.

The green dots represent a good level of accessibility for the street, the yellow ones indicate small obstacles and vibrations averagely impacting on the path, the red ones indicate a danger registered through very emphasized vibrations of the wheelchair and through obstacles or stairs that are difficult to avoid. Then, the red symbol with the wheelchair indicates the presence of architectonical barriers, the purple one with the skittle the presence of a temporary obstacle, while the orange symbol signals a slope that’s hard to traverse.

As always, all the job has been carried out with the precious contribution of the Kimappers, the community of users and volunteers (whose number constantly grows) who daily share paths, obstacles, experience and tourist itineraries that are accessible also for people who, to move, uses a wheelchair or other aids.

Kimap - smartphone app

The Kimap project sure doesn’t stop here: the next steps include the release of the free app on the most important stores for mobile devices and further tests in the most renowned tourist cities in our Country. The next stage has been decided already: i twill be Rome, our capital city, that attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. A big challenge, indeed, given the particular features of the wonderful (but not very accessible indeed) “eternal city”!

We’ll talk about it for sure on this website, of course: stay tuned!
