Diversity & inclusion.
Klarna’s mission is to foster an inclusive and empowering work environment. Everyone has an equal opportunity to develop and reach their full potential and is encouraged to be the best and truest version of themselves. We are committed to a workplace where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their background. Diverse perspectives are welcomed! Our goal is to eliminate prejudice and discrimination. To raise awareness, we continuously develop and review guidelines, such as our Inclusive Communication Guide that support everyone in their internal communications, and provide employee training on unconscious bias.
Gender balanced by 2025
We strive for gender equality by accelerating women’s careers. On International Women’s Day 2021 we announced our target of reaching gender balance by 2025 through a series of events highlighting women’s contributions to the company and the actions we have taken on gender equality at Klarna.
Today, 39% of Klarna’s employees are women, up 3% from 2019, and 31% of Klarna’s leadership positions are held by women.
But we know we still have a lot more to do. Women are underrepresented in STEM professions at Klarna, reflecting the wider industry imbalance. We are testing new ways of sourcing diverse talent, ensuring equal promotions and equal pay, and working on removing any friction from our hiring process. We support women in engineering at all levels, an effort that is also led by our internal employee resource groups, who support women engineers’ personal and professional development at Klarna.
