Gender equality, diversity and equal conditions at KTH

The work for change for gender equality, diversity and equal conditions at KTH is called JML. Gender equality and the rejection of all forms of discrimination are both a quality-assurance issue and a self-evident component of KTH’s core values.

Gender equality, diversity and equal conditions at KTH

The work for change for gender equality (jämställdhet), diversity (mångfald) and equal conditions (lika villkor) is called JML at KTH. JML is basically about protecting democracy, the equal worth of all people and human rights. Not least, JML is about creating and maintaining a good and safe work and study environment for both employees and students. The in-depth work with awareness-raising and competence development in terms of Gender equality and core values is important to achieve the goal of an open and welcoming university.

What does a more equal KTH mean?

  • A more even distribution between men and women within the organisation and its decision-making bodies.
  • Gender-conscious leadership.
  • Integrated gender perspectives in its education and research.
  • Gender equality outside KTH is promoted.
  • Incorporates gender perspectives in its resource allocation and equal conditions for staff in different parts of KTH.

Our mission

The JML work at the university is based on government directives as well as internal policy documents that indicate the work going forward for both the exercise of authority and change work. KTH has two main missions regarding Gender equality, Diversity and Equal conditions at the university. The first is the mission to work actively with anti-discrimination, both as an employer and as an education provider. The second task is Gender equality integration, where universities and colleges must have plans for how the institution intends to integrate gender equality into regular decision-making forums and work processes.
