The standard

The Italian reference praxis UNI/PdR 125:2022 – Guidelines of the management system for gender equality – is a document published by UNI (the Italian body for standardization). The document reports the results of the discussion of the working group about the gender certification of companies, as established by the PNRR Mission 5. The group was coordinated by the Department of Equal Opportunities and involved the Department of family policies, the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies, the Ministry of Economic Development and the National Equality Councillor.

Through the certification of the management system for gender equality, the company adheres to a voluntary system that leads to structure and adopt a system of key performance indicators (KPI) concerningg the policies for gender equality.

To guarantee an objective measurement of the companies’ maturity levels, they detected 6 areas of indicators concerning the several variables/factors that make a company really inclusive and respectful of gender equality, a company that aims to overcome the gender stereotypes and promote the female empowerment.
