Equality, diversity and equal treatment

KTH’s core values are based on democracy, the equal value of human beings, human rights and freedom and free and open discussion. Equality between men and women and the dissociation from all forms of discrimination are both an issue of quality and a natural part of KTH’s core values. Equality and diversity among employees and students also represent important resources for KTH.

At the school, we work on issues related to equality, diversity and equal treatment in the EECS Work Environment Group . The work is based on, among other things, the school's work environment plan, KTH's action plan against discrimination and KTH's guideline on gender equality, diversity and equal conditions (in Swedish) .

Discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and victimization

If you need support when you feel that you have been discriminated against, harassed, sexually harassed or been exposed to victimization you can turn to your immediate manager or to the EECS contact person to whom you can find contact information to in the bottom of the page. 

The first step is a talk with the person you turn to for support, to find out what happened. Together, discuss how to proceed. As regards to a complaint to KTH, there are no special formalities. A complaint may be in spoken or written form.

You can also contact a counsellor at the occupational health care , your union  or the EECS safety representatives .
