Diversity & Inclusion Advisor, CERN
MeetUp P.09 | Halle / hall 3
From Talk to Target
Looking back while looking forward, a gender target would have seemed revolutionary in 1983. More recently, after ten years of gender and other diversity-related policies and actions, the Diversity and Inclusion Programme at CERN proposed a gender target strategy, “25 by ‘25”. Unanimously endorsed by the Senior Management in 2021, implementation is well underway and interim results are in. What is working and why? Beyond gender, let’s talk about how diversity and inclusion in STEM can be most effective when it is designed for, and with, everyone.

Details zum/r Referent/in: Melania Coletta
Vita: Formerly an accountant, then HR professional, Melania spent several years prior to CERN at the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. She also worked in the private sector working on projects to access EU funds for women, vulnerable populations, and other needs within specific industries.
Coming into the Diversity and Inclusion portfolio at the European Central Bank turned a job assignment into a passion. Inspired by the possibilities and motivated by positive change, she has chosen to remain within the D&I environment ever since.
Melania’s favourite motto is “Diversity is a fact, inclusion is an act”. Since she joined CERN in April 2022, her philosophy is to drive and implement as many acts of inclusion as possible within in the workplace.
