About Equal Opportunities at KI

Karolinska Institutet, KI, is one of the world’s leading medical universities. Our vision is to make a significant contribution to the improvement of human health. Our mission is to conduct research, to educate and to collaborate with society at large. In order to succeed in reaching our goals, we need students and employees to develop and thrive at KI. We need an environment characterised by openness, creativity and curiosity.

We therefore work with issues such as equal opportunities, gender equality, work and study environments. It is by creating good conditions for everyone that we can develop our core activities; factors such as gender, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age cannot be allowed to stand in the way.
