It’s time for a change.

It’s time for a change.

Diversity and inclusivity aren’t matters of opinion. How we’re working to get it right — and avoiding complacency.

Diverse perspectives make the world a better place and allow us to achieve more.

This is why we’ve established unambiguous clearly measurable goals for the diversity and inclusivity of our Solita community. But we also want to be a force for positive change for the industry as a whole.

We are committed to actively promoting diversity and equality

  • At Solita, everybody should feel comfortable to be themselves, ‘with all their perfections’.

  • Diversity of all kinds is our strength; be it skills, nationality, beliefs, age, gender or sexual orientation. It is embedded in our culture and core values.

  • We care about each other, people and society as a whole. We focus on changing the world, not people.

Our diversity and equality focus areas

  • 30 % women by the end of 2025

  • People Leads mandatory DEI-training

  • DEI is considered in succession planning for leadership roles

  • Unconscious bias-training compulsory part of interview training for anyone doing recruitment

  • Annual pay equality surveys

  • Study on minority experience (Inclusion study) at least every 3 years

  • Employees perception of the state of DEI are followed, target levels clearly above industry benchmark (Peakon)

  • DEI – strategy and statistics are shared openly with all employees and accessible on Insider

Improving our gender balance is a natural starting point. The ICT industry has always been male-dominant. For example, in Finland nearly 80% of university-level ICT students are male. The time has come for a change, both in our Solita community and across the industry as a whole. Our initial diversity targets are aimed at improving our gender balance and increasing the number of nationalities represented in our community.

But that’s just the first step and the tip of the iceberg. 

In the long term, we are committed to strengthening a culture of inclusivity that embraces diversity of all kinds.

Diversity of all kinds

Our action areas

Here are some of the ways we’re making diversity, equity, and inclusion real.

Nowhere near enough

We can’t read the above list as evidence that we’re doing just fine on DEI. We’re not. We have much, much more to do. But we’re confident that — if we stay focused and committed — we will become the fair, diverse and inclusive Solita we can be. And we’re excited to be on this journey together.
