International Women’s Day celebrations for 2018
"International Women’s Day 2018 is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination." – The United Nations
As we joined the global community to celebrate International Women’s Day, we continued our commitment to:
- Inspire change and confirm that Ericsson supports the advancement of women everywhere
- Champion gender equality and promote the empowerment of all women
We celebrated International Women’s Day 2018 in many ways throughout the week of March 8. Ericsson employees participated in activities and events at Ericsson offices all over the world.
Together, we will continue to #PressforProgress!
Ericsson celebrated International Women’s Day with several key activities:
The Living Library
The Living Library is a platform for connections, where you can “read” and be inspired by Ericsson employees! And as our library is full of living books, conversations and exchange of ideas are not only possible, but encouraged! more
Ericsson Executive Women Panel Discussion
Ericsson female executives were featured in a panel discussion session where employees listened to their insights and thoughts and brainstormed ideas together on how to improve gender balance.
Women in Engineering and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
IEEE, “the world’s largest technical professional organization” and Ericsson partnered up for a Women in Engineering webinar to discuss #PressforProgress and Gender Parity. Listen to the recorded session here and join the chat #WIEWednesday and #EricssonDiversity.
Ericsson’s Mentoring Circles focused on the question, “What can I do to promote inclusion and reinforce positive change?” Ericsson employees held discussions about the culture, climate and behaviors as they impact the #PressforProgress International Women’s Day theme for 2018.
You could also take a quiz here to test how much you know about the role of women in the Tech Industry?

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.
