AP2 conducts an annual survey to determine the number of women employed in middle-and-executive-management positions and on the boards of publicly quoted companies. Furthermore, the survey records the number of women who have graduated in disciplines that constitute the traditional recruitment base for corporate executives and boards of directors.

AP2 has for 20 years measured the proportion of women on boards and in executive management teams and published AP2’s Female Representation Index. The Index for 2022 shows that the proportion of women on the boards of companies listed on NASDAQ Stockholm continue to increase and is now 35,4 (34.5) percent. This is the highest level measured since the survey started. Compared with the relatively small changes that have been in recent years, the increase is relatively large, as the share of women has grown by almost one percentage point.
