Diverse and inclusive workplace
We believe the LEGO Group – and LEGO® play – is for everyone, no matter where you come from, what you look like or how you identify.
It’s our mission to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow. To succeed in this mission, and help all children develop the skills that will help them fulfil their potential, we must continue to play our part in building a more inclusive and equitable world, starting with our own organization.
What does diversity and inclusion mean to us
Inclusion is a choice, a conscious behavior, which starts with creating a safe space for everyone to be seen, heard, valued and respected. And the magic is in the mix. Embracing different ideas, opinions and approaches is also what helps us create LEGO® play experiences that are inclusive of all and welcome everyone to the joy of building. We introduced Conscious Inclusion training to help strengthen conscious inclusion behaviors in all.
Beyond Conscious Inclusion, we focus on developing the ability in all to address microaggressions and be allies for one another, understand and navigate cultural differences, learn about the lived experiences of others and become advocates for diversity and inclusion in the communities we are part of.
Diversity is the visible and invisible dimensions that make each of us unique. We want our organization to reflect the diversity of the world we operate in and seek to inspire. Currently we focus on gender, ethnicity, LGBTQIA+ communities and people with disabilities.
We work on a range of initiatives to improve representation, from partnerships and outreach, to ensuring the language in our job listings is welcoming of everyone, and are continuously improving our people processes to ensure they are fair and equitable for all.
Breaking down gender stereotypes
At the LEGO Group, we believe children are our role models. We look to them for inspiration every day and want to help them break down gender stereotypes and create opportunities for everyone.
Our long-term ambition is a completely gender-balanced organization at all levels by 2032.
We measure and report on the progress on the share of women globally and set annual targets for share of women at Director level and above, i.e women in executive positions.
Progress since 2019
Partnering with UN Women
We signed a partnership with UN Women and consequently apply the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) which outline how businesses can deliver on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
With this partnership, we are committed to taking bold steps, as part of our Sustainability 2022 ambitions to advance gender equality in our workplace, marketplace and community.
