Updated Diversity & Inclusion Targets for 2022
While we are proud of the progress made against our four D&I targets announced in 2019, we are by no means satisfied. We remain committed to driving the D&I agenda and have during 2021 worked to identify new D&I targets to address a broader approach to diversity and the importance of inclusion of all.
In February 2022, we announced our updated and more ambitious D&I targets which going forward will replace the targets announced at the 2019 AGM. We will report on progress for all targets on a yearly basis.
- Increase Kinnevik Inclusion - Increase Our Inclusion Score on an Annual Incremental Basis
- 10% Female Capital Allocation - On a Two-Year Rolling Basis, 10% of New Capital in Female Founded or Led Companies from 2019 AGM and onward
- Follow-On Investments - Only Make Follow-On Investments in Companies that are Making Sufficient Progress in Relation to Diversity & Inclusion
- Ensure Portfolio Progress - Achieve Annual Incremental Progress across Portfolio on Relevant Diversity & Inclusion Efforts
