We make more than steel
Focusing on gender equality
Our co-workers are Ovako’s most important asset. For us, it is primarily about finding the right skills for the right role at the right time. The steel industry is traditionally male-dominated, and Ovako works continuously to increase the number of women among its employees. Today on the International Women’s Day, Ovako’s EVP Group HR, Communication & EHS Phetra Ericsson shares her thoughts on what the industry can do to attract more women.Read more
