Why do we have so few women working at Swedish IT and Tech companies? How is it that we find women working mostly for less tech-intensive departments? What can we do to improve the situation?

TechEq is a unique initiative with aim of bringing technology companies together to actively improve gender equality within the IT-industry. What has been done? What has not been done? How do we want the future to look like? Together we can learn from each other and share our experiences. When it comes to gender equality, we are not competitors.

TechEq is a network initiated by MTGx, Netlight, Tieto and Tritech with the aim of influencing the entire IT industry. Today there are more than hundred companies engaged to mutually drive the initiative. All participating organizations share the responsibility of pursuing the initiative.

All coming events and seminars are distributed through the TechEq LinkedIn Group as well as through an email list administrated by the planning group. To join the TechEq Agreement, email us at join@techeq.se and complete the information provided.






We promise to actively strive for a more equal representation between women and men within our organization. Within technical services as well as within administrative services, for the organization altogether, as well as on division-, group- and project levels. We promise to continue engaging in the question and do not forget or settle with inequality.


We promise to share our work, methods, insights, and results, to others with the same aspiration. We promise to value openness rather than competition amongst each other. We believe that the change we can achieve together is more important than our differences.


We promise to dare to count the distribution of women at different levels within the company and to not settle with a general appreciation. We promise to evaluate the results and answer for them and to use them in our continuous work towards a more equal workplace.
