At Ovako, our open and inclusive culture based on pride in the business and its employees, is the foundation of our operations. The steel industry has traditionally been male-dominated and Ovako is committed to increasing the number of women among our employees. We engage in a number of activities to raise the share of women in the organization and have set clear targets for this. Efforts include collaboration with educational institutions, and making sure external recruitment firms are always present female candidates in the recruitment process.

In addition to gender equality, Ovako is working actively to achieve higher diversity in relation to other factors. Everyone must have equal opportunities and the company has zero tolerance for all forms of discrimination and harassment.


The goal is for at least 25 % of managerial positions to be held by women, and for the entire organization to be at least 23 % female.
