Our D&I Journey: going from recruiting 
30% females/ month up to 60%/ month

  • Many companies are in the same boat, with high ambitions to drive a diversity and inclusion agenda that make a real differences

  • Not so many companies truly succeed to turn the numbers around. At Tele2 we have during 2019 started a journey to   build a gender balanced company with 50% females and      50% males by 2023. Super challenging! But we like       ambitious and stretching targets.
