Campari Group is the first Italian company to join the Unstereotype Alliance, a thought and action platform with the mission to eradicate harmful stereotypes in media and advertising content, convened by UN Women and leveraging the UN's global reach of 193 member states.
Joining Unstereotype Alliance is a very meaningful step to further strengthen Campari Group’s commitment to Sustainable Development Goal #5, advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women while dismantling all harmful stereotypes in the pursuit of a truly equal world.
Within this partnership, Campari Group not only commits to the fight against gender discrimination and inequality, but also joins forces with 184 other members globally set out to influence culture and society in a positive way by challenging biased attitudes.
In 2020 Campari Group has declared a new global strategy to further foster diversity, equity and inclusion in the company workplace.
“This collaboration is a further step within our global strategy promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, a real commitment towards Camparistas, our business partners and the communities of the countries where we operate. Partnering with Unstereotype Alliance means having access to unique knowledge sharing, precious learning tools and best practices that will support us pursue this ambitious goal” comments Aldo Davoli, Global Public Affairs & Sustainability Sr. Director in Campari Group.
“Stereotypes are around us, entrenched in everyday life and culture, and when unchallenged they feed discrimination and give a false representation of reality. At Campari Group, we aim to build brands that resonate with consumers and reflect, realistically, the multiple dimensions that compose the individual, to foster a more authentic representation of things and do our part to generate positive change. We are glad to join Unstereotype Alliance to give our contribution to conceive compelling and balanced advertising, share practices with the other members and learn and progress, stronger, together” states Julka Villa, Managing Director Spirits in Campari Group.
