‘Over 50% of our employees are women; our CEO is female and 50% of our executive management are women.’
White Arkitekter is an employee-owned practice of more than 900 staff in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and the United Kingdom and we are proud of our working culture which gives everyone a voice regardless of gender. Over 50 per cent of our employees are women; our CEO is female, 50 per cent of our executive management are women, increasing to 55 per cent at board level.
Women should have the opportunity to lead large-scale projects; at White this is the norm, not the exception – for example our 2014 Kasper Salin Prize-winning Väven Cultural Centre in Umeå was led by a woman. Our continuing support of the campaign is part of White’s commitment to fostering equal opportunities internationally, inspiring and learning from others.
