Over the past few years, Ericsson has made steady progress in increasing the number of women at senior-level positions. The number of women in the top 250 most senior positions has also continued to rise and is currently at 25%.
Gender Ambition for 2020
Ericsson strives to be a gender-intelligent organization that recognizes and values the differences that everyone brings to the workplace.
In 2013, Ericsson set a global long-term ambition to increase the number of women in its organization. The gender diversity ambition is to have a workforce that is 30 % female by 2020, including Executives and leaders. Since 2013, Ericsson has worked with annual gender-diversity plans and is making long-term progress toward the target but we are not yet where we want to be. In 2013, we had 21% women in the workforce, today that number is 23%.
We believe that achieving gender equality across the world requires everyone to be involved. Ericsson supports the UN HeforShe Campaign, which focuses on what men can do to address the inequalities and discrimination faced by women.
"We all benefit socially, politically and economically from gender equality in our everyday lives. When women are empowered, the whole of humanity benefits. Gender equality liberates not only women but also men, from prescribed social roles and gender stereotypes." HeforShe
