Equal opportunity

Changing the entreprenorm for a more equal society.

We are committed to advocating for financial equality for women, with a focus on fostering equal opportunities in entrepreneurship.

Only about 30 percent of company owners in Sweden are women. This is partly due to norms and biases that prevent women from accessing networks and funding. At SEB, we want to change the entreprenorm. So that more women can pitch their ideas, lead, own, and shape the future.

Our actions towards equality

As a bank, we have a role to play in ensuring that women have equal opportunities to own, save, and influence society. Here are some of our initiatives.
