Torbjörn Wahlborg to become Vattenfall’s next Diversity and Inclusion Officer
Torbjörn Wahlborg takes over the responsibility to drive Vattenfall’s Diversity and Inclusion culture further. He is a member of Vattenfall’s Group Management since 2010 and is currently heading the company’s Business Area Generation.
The assignment of D&I Officer rotates between members of Vattenfall’s Executive Group Management. Officers are appointed for a period of two years. Torbjörn Wahlborg will step into this role 1st July 2019. He succeeds Tuomo Hatakka heading the Business Area Heat.
“I very much look forward to take on this assignment. To succeed in the future we must embed diversity and inclusion into our corporate culture. In my role I want to contribute to as much dialogue as possible on a whole range of topics that relate to diversity and inclusion. There’s already a lot of engagement and energy within the Vattenfall Community and I will do my best to further advance our cause,“ says Wahlborg and continues:
“I look forward to the sustained support of our Executive Group Management and acknowledge previous work by my predecessors in advancing heterogenous teams and working to overcome unconscious bias.“
Vattenfall’s CEO Magnus Hall established the role of D&I Officer in Vattenfall four years ago. He says: “We are striving to mirror the societies we are active in, to be really close to our customers and other stakeholders. We can achieve this only when our staff represents the diversity of our stakeholders and when we enable our employees to utilise their diverse skills and competencies in the best possible way. Only then will we strengthen and advance our business.“
