Knowit second equal in terms of equality among listed companiesPublished 23 Nov 2018
At this year's award ceremony for the AllBright Award, Knowit was named second equal.
The AllBright Foundation has an annual award given to the listed company that during the past year has shown that it takes responsibility for driving the compan toward more meritocratic and equal operations.
Knowit came in shared second with the biotech company Bioarctic, with the health care company Humana in first place..
"The jury couldn't decide on second or third place. The competition is fierce at the top, but these three companies are far ahead of the competitors and prove that you can effect changes if you want," says Amanda Lundeteg, CEO at AllBright.
Knowit has in the past five years gone from AllBright's so-called "red list" of companies without any women in the management teams, to the "green list" of companies with gender equality in the management teams..
"We are steadily increasing the number of female employees and managers. The fact that we are actively working with equality makes it particularly gratifying to get this kind of recognition." says Per Wallentin, CEO at Knowit.
