Diversity, equality and inclusion
Nordic Capital recognises the importance of matching talent to the right roles at the right time. We are convinced that an inclusive working environment and the broadest diversity of perspectives leads to better performance and decision-making, and requires structural diversity, equality and inclusion efforts.
Improving gender equality
We consider diversity, equality and inclusion to be a key contributor to long term value creation. In line with SDG 5.5 we strive to ensure women's full and effective participation and equal opportunity for leadership at all levels of decision-making.

Strategic partnership to promote equality
We are a proud long-term sponsor of Level 20, a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving gender diversity in the European private equity industry and engaging in mentoring programmes. Together we join forces to train professionals in DEI, mentor young female talents and promote an inclusive culture.
"Teamwork lies at the heart of our culture, and we also strive to foster a broad and diverse mindset. With a presence in ten countries globally, the sharing of different perspectives has become an integral part of Nordic Capital’s culture. Diversity in experiences and diversity in characteristics brings diversity of thought. This is instrumental to making successful investments and driving performance and innovation."
