Cultivating Diversity to Create Strong Foundations.

This fall, Axel Johnson launched their Axelerate Leadership Program, a dynamic program geared toward developing international talent, while encouraging diversity as a joint prerequisite for innovative companies. Built on a mindset that inclusion creates strong foundations, Axel Johnson is focused on cultivating 60/40 gender representation as a part of company leadership, as well as requiring a minimum 20 percent of leaders to have an international background. Thirty individuals were invited to take part in the six-month program in Stockholm. The Leadership Program is fully funded by Axel Johnson and designed in collaboration with Mitt Liv, a social entrepreneurship company focused on cultivating greater diversity and integration in the Swedish labor market.
