Gender Policies

Poliwo coordinates and brings together the ideas of equal opportunities and inclusion within  our University, also by promoting working groups involving Polito faculties and researchers, with the aim of raising awareness among the entire community onfemale engineers and scientists of Politecnico di Torino.

One of the most significant action among those promoted for equal opportunities is certainly WeAreHere, a campaign characterized by physical and communication actions aimed at increasing the number of female students enrolled in courses in the engineering area. Tools to achieve this ambitious goal are events and physical and virtual tours in high schools throughout Italy.In addition to these initiatives, appropriate or related communication is promoted on social networks and opportunities for dialogue and individual counselling activities are favored, such as mentoring activities provided by the female students of the Master’s degree programmes towards the 1st year engineering students (Bachelor’s level).
