Event details

Research seminar by Dr. Francesca Marinelli, Researcher and Professore Aggregato di Diritto del Lavoro, Dipartimento di Diritto Privato e Storiadel Diritto (Università degli Studi di Milano) 

The talk will focus on the issue of gender equality in Italy. The main goal is explaining why - despite the increased protection against gender disparity set up by the Italian lawmaker in recent years (under the pressure of the European Union) -, gender discrimination in the workplace is still a widespread phenomenon to fight in Italy. In particular, the talk will focus on the gender pay gap and will consider the contrast between the last  Eurofound report on this subject, where Italy seems to be doing better than many countries in Europe, while, on the other hand, "The Global Gender Gap 2017 Report" (published by the World Economic Forum), puts Italy 82nd in the global gender gap index measuring the gender gap in broader terms.
