Women at Ericsson
Be inspired. Be empowered. Be a force in ICT.
Ericsson is dedicated to the cause of creating gender parity, by encouraging men and women to be active leaders, challenge stereotypes and biases, and promote equality. Our goal is for our workforce to be made up of at least 30% women by the year 2020. This isn’t just the right thing to do - the more diverse and inclusive our people are, the more innovative and visionary we will be as a company.
Here at Ericsson, we make sure that everyone has the support and freedom to achieve their ideal career. We also support a wide variety of programs, initiatives and groups aimed at encouraging girls and women to peruse STEM careers and to be active, engaged members of the ICT community.

35 women under 35: Amy Wettenhall
We’re proud to announce that Amy Wettenhall, a Commercial Director at Ericsson leading our global strategy for IT and our Cloud Services Portfolio, has been named to the 35 women under 35 list in Management Today! This prestigious list features some of the most prolific professional women in the business world today, and we couldn’t be happier for Amy. This recognition is very well-deserved! Amy herself had this to say:
‘I’m both humbled and thrilled to be recognised by the British 35 women under 35 management awards, something I consider could not have been possible without the significant contribution Ericsson has made to my professional development, and the ongoing prioritisation of bridging the gender gap within IT. I look forward continuing to champion women in IT, and promoting the opportunities available to young women in the IT sector through my work with TeenTech in the UK’

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
