Maria‑Pia Hope one of Swedish commerce’s most powerful women 2018

March 08, 2018 About the firm

On 7 March 2018, Vinge’s CEO Maria‑Pia Hope was named by Veckans Affärer as one of Sweden’s most powerful women within the category of director.

Maria‑Pia, you have risen five places on the list compared to last year and the reasons state, among other things, Vinge’s objective in relation to female partners. What do you think is the basis of the nomination?

”I view the placement as evidence of the fact that Vinge as a firm is going forward both on the market and as regards gender equality. I would contend that the two are linked. Of course, it is a success factor to be able to better utilize available competence. Our objective is that half of the new partners who are made up over a five‑year period should be women. We currently have over 25% female partners and among the five partners who were made up on 1 January 2018, three were women. We now also have female partners within primarily all practice areas. In addition to the partnership goal, we are also actively working on the work environment and corporate culture so that it works better for parents with small children, and we encourage gender equality in terms of parents taking parental leave. Vinge is of course only embarking on this road, but I think that we are going in the right direction.”
