NHOA supports Girls@Polimi to overcome the gender gap in STEM disciplines

Milan, 11 February 2022 – In occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we are glad to announce the call for application for the “Girls@Polimi – Borse per future ingegnere” three-year scholarships promoted by Politecnico di Milano and nine forward-looking companies, including NHOA.

The project aims to overcome the gender gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines and it is part of the Polytechnic Equal Opportunities (POP) initiatives to support and guarantee a study and work environment that respects gender identity, disability, and culture.

The call is open to high school female students who will enroll in engineering courses in 2022.

Targeting to multiply by 10 the number of women engineers to employ by 2025 and convinced of the primary importance of investing in human capital formation, NHOA supports the Girls@Polimi project by donating one of the 15 three-year scholarships, which include also training and mentoring activities.

“The synergy between business and academic world is decisive in the fight against the gender gap in the hiring step” commented Carlalberto Guglielminotti, CEO of NHOA Group. “NHOA aims at positioning itself as a company that truly invests in women. Breaking down barriers and focusing on female talent is not just a goal of equality but also economic and social growth and a necessary foundation for a prosperous and sustainable world”.
