A global business commitment to racial and ethnic equality

Ingka Group commits to increase ethnic, racial and national diversity at all levels of leadership in 30 countries, by 2024, as a part of its Equality Plan.

Ingka Group will work towards three key objectives: Reflect the multicultural diversity of the communities and countries where it operates, at all levels of leadership. Advance underrepresented groups through equitable business practices. Enhance inclusion for co-workers of all ethnicities, races and nationalities. 

Special attention will be given to representation in management, including by employee category, in boards, as well as percentage of salaried vs. hourly co-workers.

The roots of this commitment can be found in the very essence of the Ingka Group business, the IKEA vision. A better everyday is also an equal everyday – at home, at work and everywhere in between. 

The current global conversations around ethnic and racial equality show that there is a way to go before everyone has an equal everyday. 

“As a purpose-led company, we have a role to play in advancing equality in society. As an employer committed to fair treatment and equal opportunities, we want all of our co-workers to know that IKEA is a place where people of all backgrounds can thrive. A more diverse IKEA will also enable us to better reflect, understand and serve our customer base’’ – said Ulrika Biesert, Chief Human Resources Officer at Ingka Group (IKEA).
