Percentage of women in Axel Johnson’s boards: 52 percent

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day. A survey of the boards in our group companies shows that Axel Johnson’s company has a total of 52 percent women in the boards.

Axel Johnson works actively for increased diversity, since we know it makes our operations better. Through diversity, we create inclusive and innovative companies that reflect and understand our customers.

The Allbright Foundation continously follow up on gender equality in Swedish companies, and the latest survey shows that the proportion of women in boards in Swedish listed companies is 33 percent. Today, we can report that Axel Johnson’s companies’ boards has more than 50 percent women in total.

“We are proud that we have more than 50 percent women in total in our group companies’ boards. The reason why more than half of our board members are women is because we have recruited members with the best skills,” said Caroline Berg, chairman of Axel Johnson.
