Many projects and companies strive after 50 % gender diversity – also within testing.But is it really good enough? To create a culture that is self-employed and motivated in addition to be able to take leadership to improve methodologies and create innovations requires a broader definition of diversity. Test teams must be composed of individuals regardless of gender, cultural background, age and personal style.

It is not enough with nice presentations with attractive targets for diversity. To succeed requires hard and patient work every day from management to create a culture that is living throughout the whole company.

Diversity leads to a good working environment that is hungry to learn new methods and make small innovations in everyday life. We have achieved our diversity goals with f ex 46% women. It resulted in a vibrant and fun test competence community.
