With Global Diversity Month in October, I’ve been thinking about the topic of diversity a lot. Even in the time of Covid, I continue to travel for my job and being on the road gives me a lot of time to think. A few weeks ago, I was waiting to board a flight in Germany and saw a sign from the United Nations celebrating Global Diversity Month. It touched upon one of the areas we as a company have committed to when it comes to diversity, specifically gender equality. I snapped a quick picture as I headed to my plane so I would be able to reflect upon it later.
Tele2 has long made a strong stand on diversity, starting with gender diversity: our company has committed to having a 50/50 gender split by 2023. Already today, when it comes to gender diversity, Tele2 ranks first among companies on the Swedish OMX30 index, and eighth among 255 evaluated European companies. And while we’re very proud of these results, we are always striving to do more.
