Gender Equality in technology – KTH and Scania: Anna Wahl and Sofia Wahlne
Despite efforts from both academia and the industry, women are still underrepresented in technology education and the technology industry. In big tech companies such as Microsoft and Google women make up roughly 30 % of the workforce. At KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, 34 % of the undergraduate students and 31 % of the graduate students are women. But only about 16 % of the professors at KTH are women.
In this episode of KTH Tech Talks we meet Anna Wahl, Vice Rector at KTH with responsibility for gender equality, and Sofia Wahlne, Head of Labour Affairs at the Swedish transport company Scania. They discuss what is being done at KTH and at Scania in terms of gender equality and what efforts are made in order to make KTH and Scania more attractive workplaces for women.
