Abstract

L’articolo esplora i dispositivi di gender equity e le azioni per il sostegno alle carriere femminili a partire dalla review sistematica degli studi empirici sul tema dell’ultimo ventennio (2000-2020). Sono stati analizzati centodieci contributi nazionali e internazionali. Le finalità della review sono contribuire a ricostruire lo stato dell’arte degli studi nazionali e internazionali su gender equity nei workplace, segregazioni di genere e work-life balance e offrire un quadro di sintesi rispetto alle proposte di intervento e ai dispositivi di supporto alle carriere femminili.
L'obiettivo è individuare traiettorie di intervento utili a sviluppare modelli culturali ed educativi validi per coltivare processi di inclusione di genere nelle organizzazioni e nei contesti di lavoro.
