Eight additional Swedish companies join Mitt Liv’s CEO programme to take action on diversity and inclusion

17 May 2022

Mitt Liv’s first round of "CEOs for Diversity & Inclusion" (D&I) resulted in actionable strategies and solutions for those companies that were represented. Eight CEOs per year are getting the opportunity to be part of the programme, and Mitt Liv is now starting a cooperation with an additional group of CEOs from Kicks, PwC Sweden, DNB Sweden, Securitas, Sizes Construction AB, DanAds, Mannheimer Swartling and Novax. The idea with "CEOs for D&I" is to create a more competitive Sweden through diversity and inclusion, and for the company leaders to inspire others to also take action. Mitt Liv has an ambition to include 40 CEOs to the program within 5 years to create an impact on the labour market.
