Gender equality at our university

The goal of Luleå University of Technology's gender equality work is that women and men should have the same power to shape society and their own lives. In order to achieve an equal society, an equality perspective must be applied to all areas of society. This strategy is called gender mainstreaming.

In order to enable Luleå University of Technology's vision for the year 2030, the chancellor has decided on a strategic investment, LTU - Sweden's most equal university, to contribute to attractive and equal education and industries. The investment will also contribute to gender-conscious recruitment and equal career development at the university.
