Pirelli: one of the voices for inclusion
Raise global awareness among the private sector and engage it to find innovative solutions for the challenges faced by people with disabilities. - Exchange best practices, examples, and strategies to make sports more accessible for all. encourage national and international cooperation among various stakeholders and inspire individuals around the world to actively participate in making the world a more inclusive place. These were the objectives of the event “1 Billion Voices: Making the Invisible Visible”, organized at the United Nations in New York.
It was such an important event for Pirelli to have the honor to represent the private sector because corporate social responsibility is a must for the company.
Actually, the name of the initiative, “Making the Invisible Visible”, reminds us all of something Pirelli does every day: to take something invisible, in this case road safety, and make it visible through the production of tires designed to keep people safe.
Pirelli is committed to making other invisible things visible as well, through our support of many initiatives around the world dedicated to improving people’s lives. Since its incorporation in 1872, Pirelli has always played an active role in developing the communities where our people work and live, investing with them in healthcare, education, social welfare and sports.
In fact, sports were one of the recurring themes during the event at the ONU.
At New York Pirelli was proud to supported the participation of Julio Gonzalez, Inter Campus Paraguay’s Technical Director, at the UN event. Gonzalez spoke about sports and disability, and his own experiences. He was an outstanding player in Italy before losing his left arm as the result of an auto accident in 2005.
Also with its support of these initiatives, Pirelli is one of the one billion voices. The hope is to build a chorus of solidarity that grows stronger and louder every day.
