  • When the environment does not match your abilities

    The year is 2019, and Ulrika Georgsson is engaged in meeting the new law on digital accessibility. She reads all details of the law and teaches how KTH's web editors should create content.

  • A JML beginner’s reflections

    Gender equality at work is not just about the proportion of women and men or fair wages. It is also about what is deeply rooted in the organisation - the culture.
