Text from Addtech Annual Report 2020/2021
Within Addtech’s focus area Sustainable Organization, there is a vision to have 40 percent women in leading positions by 2030. We still have some way to go, but the ambition is definitely to achieve the goal. A woman who holds a leading position within Addtech is Carolin Burlin, CEO of Recab, which is part of the Automation business area. Recab currently has about 35 employees in Sweden, Norway and Denmark and offers products and solutions in areas such as industrial automation.
– Recab works with many of the hot buzzwords that exist in the technology industry today; AI, Industry 4.0, Machine Learning and Embedded Computers. You absolutely do not have to be a technology nerd to work in a leading position in the technology industry, says Carolin. We should become better at highlighting female role models who like technology.
Technology is a big concept that includes an infinite number of products, solutions and tasks. Recab is well on its way to achieving the vision of 40 percent women in leading positions. According to Carolin, 33 percent of the company’s management today are women. – For us, it is important to have the right skills and commitment within the company, says Caroline.
As CEO of one of Addtech’s subsidiaries, I absolutely feel that there is genuine support from Group management to pursue the issue of gender equality. We must become even better at creating mixed workplaces where women and men together can contribute to the development of sustainable products and technology solutions.
