Published: 2 June 2022, 20:45“If you want to be relevant, you can not be comfortable. It requires that you make decisions that are not easy in the near future, but which are completely right in the long run “, emphasized Vattenfall’s President and CEO Anna Borg, who received the award Top Manager of the Year at Di’s ceremony for Business’s Most Powerful Woman on Thursday.She further commented the proportion of women among Vattenfall’s managers, today 30 percent. “It’s too low. We need a more even distribution of men and women, but we must also work with other aspects of diversity, ”said Anna Borg from the stage.

This year’s board professional Helene Svahn, a heavyweight in both academia and business, revealed that she will soon take on an operational role in an as yet unlicensed company in the energy sector. Almost 20 years ago, the prestigious American university MIT named her one of the world’s most promising researchers. In the autumn, Helene Svahn, professor of nanobiotechnology at KTH, was elected to the board of the German car giant Mercedes-Benz Group.

Board recruitment is not in the long run equal, she stated. “I do not know how many times you have to say it, but it’s just to continue until we reach a higher result.” When Entrepreneur of the Year Pernilla Nyrensten, CEO and founder of Revolution Race, received her award, she made it clear that she did not wants to be called a role model. ”I do not like the word. However, I hope I am an inspirer. That’s good enough. ”Pernilla Nyrensten was also clear that a scandalously low share of Sweden’s venture capital (around 2 percent) goes to women. It is time to put an end to the prejudice that “women hand over the baton far too soon”, she emphasized.

She also gave advice to new entrepreneurs: “Dare to believe in yourself. Sometimes you rely too much on experts. ”
