The Wom, Mondadori Media’s 100% inclusive digital brand that speaks to young millennials and Generation Z, has won the Diversity Media Awards 2023 for the “Best Web Article”.
The eighth edition of the “Inclusion Oscars”, organised by the non-profit “Fondazione Diversity”, awarded the characters and media content that have contributed to an inclusive representation that highlights people by gender and gender identity, sexual and affective orientation, ethnicity, age, disability and physical appearance.
These are issues close to the heart of The Wom’s mission, which has become a touchstone for the younger generation on the Internet and on social media for the ability to combat prejudices and stereotypes with levity and empathy and highlight the uniqueness of every individual.
The Wom has set itself apart in the “Best Web Article” category – as part of the media awards – because of “‘No Data’: the investigation denouncing the lack of data on Italian Law 194”, written by contributor Francesca Polizzi.
“We are proud to receive this award: it’s an important recognition for the work done by The Wom team, just over a year after its debut on social media and the Internet. We make a daily commitment that comes from the need to make room for issues like equal rights, diversity and inclusion”, said Daniela Cerrato, Digital Marketing Director at Mondadori Media. “Our first mission is to raise awareness and we do it using a language that goes beyond any label, to get closer and closer to what our future represents, namely the new generations”, concluded Cerrato.
That value, promoting an inclusive culture, is at the heart of the entire Mondadori Group’s commitment.
“As Mondadori Group we’re particularly proud of this major achievement from The Wom. It’s a privilege and a continuous source of enthusiasm for all of us to be able to contribute to the creation of a more inclusive, attentive and future-oriented society and world of work”, said Francesca Rigolio, Chief Diversity Officer of the Mondadori Group and Head of Human Resources in the Books Department.
