Progress 2019: Diversity and inclusion

20 February 2020
diversity and inclusion

It is a basic obligation and a core element of our values not to discriminate against our employees. Discrimination bars people from living up to their full potential, creates inequality as well as less stable and prosperous societies. We want to leverage the competitive advantage that diverse teams and inclusive cultures can bring to our business.

Ambition

We aspire to create an inclusive culture where employees from every background can contribute to their fullest. In doing this, we will be in a prime position to attract people from the widest talent pool, specifically increasing the gender and nationality diversity at our senior levels.

Targets

2023: Target for representation of women on the Board of Directors. Three women on the Board of Directors, if the Board consists of less than twelve members, and four women, if the Board consists of twelve or more members. 
2020:  Targets for senior management representation of 1) women and 2) persons from countries that are not in the OECD high income countries list.

Progress 2019

Continued work towards targets for gender and nationality in management, ran first company-wide diversity and inclusion week, launched new e-learning and leader training module on unconscious bias. Worked on recruitment, sexual harassment, LGBT inclusion, including update of the diversity and inclusion policy.
