About Katarina

 I have my background in Communications and HR and leadership roles with 25 years in the automotive industry. 

 Over the years I have developed a deep knowledge and experience in what it takes to drive Culture and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)  in a global organization in a highly competitive industry. 

I met and trained more than 1000 leaders in Unconscious Bias Training and DE&I workshops. Other achievements also include implementing a global parental leave policy,  creating awareness on LGBTQ+ as well as driving a number of global initiatives to increase awareness and gender balance as well as creating an inclusive culture in the organization . 

In a global, connected and fast pacing world, I believe it's so important that an inclusive culture and leadership continues to promote innovative, creative, respectful and inclusive working environments for every individual – regardless of gender or nationality, background and experience. 

Since September 2021 I run my own business, with the purpose to support and develop leaders, teams and organizations to go from less talk to more action in making a diverse, equal and inclusive environment really come to life and be fully integrated in the workplace.  

I want results that make a real difference, helping customers to identify the why, what and how to become a truly diverse and inclusive leader and organization - and to fully experience the clear connection to business benefits and being an attractive organization for talent, clients and consumers. 

I am an experienced and engaging speaker and moderator and am always curious to take on new assignments.

I am certified in Equality/Gender/Leadership (JGL) for boards provided by Säkra Kvinnor and LEDA20.

Moreover I am one of the initiators of Diversity Charter Sweden's operations in Gothenburg and am a mentor in several organizations such as  Öppet Hus, Nyföretagarcentrum Väst and Mitt Liv.
