Our top priority is achieving gender balance at all levels of the company
Achieving gender balance at all levels of the company is one of our top priorities. Our focus is firmly on leveraging the full talents of both women and men. Currently, women make up 42 percent of our workforce. More than 40 percent of our management positions are held by women. Our goal is to achieve at least 35 percent of women in senior roles by 2025.
How do we make this happen? First, we aim to recruit equal numbers of men and women at all levels. To support this, our job advertisements use gender-neutral language, we push for gender-balanced shortlists, and we use diverse interview panels to reduce the risk of unconscious bias in talent assessments. Second, we focus on supporting the growth and advancement of all employees through personalized development plans and access to learning opportunities, contributing to more gender-balanced leadership over time.
“Women in Leadership” program
To help boost our progress in achieving gender equality, we have designed a “Women in Leadership” program to support female employees in navigating the challenges women commonly face at work and in advancing their careers.
Around 50 director-level women participated in the program in 2021. The program is complementary to the more general leadership and technical/functional skills development programs offered to both women and men.
We also support our female talent by creating opportunities to network and build mentoring relationships with peers and role models.
