On March 16, 2024, the second meeting of the Range Rover Leadership Academy was held. This educational initiative, spearheaded by Jaguar Land Rover Italia, is dedicated to nurturing the talents of 20 students pursuing their Master’s Degree in Systemic Design at the Polytechnic University of Turin.

Throughout this program, students are afforded the invaluable opportunity to participate in a series of workshops led by industry experts, esteemed academics, seasoned entrepreneurs, and innovative startup founders. The workshops delve into a diverse range of topics, including technology, sustainability, circular economy and the crucial issue of gender equality.

GRLS brings to the table its expertise in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

During the second half of the day, Benedetta Tornesi, CEO of GRLS, had the opportunity to discuss with the participants the importance of Diversity in the company, starting right from day one.

In particular, Benedetta’s intervention focused on practical examples of how the lack of diversity in the workforce has led even renowned and esteemed brands to be less inclusive and accessible.

Considering workforce diversification means investing in one’s culture from day zero, thus gaining a competitive advantage in talent attraction aligned with one’s values, a fundamental element for successful hiring.

In conclusion, the intervention provided a series of practical insights and actionable steps for all individuals present in the potential opening and subsequent internal organization of a startup.

Alongside GRLS, many other sustainable startups

The day was filled with engaging discussions, and many other startups – all characterized by a strong focus on environmental and social sustainability – shared their experiences.

In the morning session, alongside Marco Santucci, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, the founders of Reefilla, NinaCare, Novis Games, Circularity, Ta-Daan, and Deesup took the stage.

In the afternoon, joining Benedetta Tornesi on stage, Andrea Baldereschi – both experts for the Range Rover Leadership Academy 2024 – provided an overview of possible strategies for launching technological products into the market, particularly through crowdfunding campaigns.
