A Woman's Place

“Equality in Sweden isn’t perfect, but it might be the best that we have in the world”

Why should it be harder for half of the population to fulfil their potential? Why should the ambitions and ideas of female staff be stifled? Why does one gender continue to dominate labour market resources?

That doesn’t make sense to us in Stockholm. Of course, we’re not perfect. We are still working to close the pay gap between men and women, for example, and we don’t have yet enough female board members. But with positive attitudes towards equality, strong gender discrimination laws and modern industries full of forward-thinking companies, we believe there’s no better place for talented women to thrive.
