Ragni was critical to Statoil. Now she works for Equinor.
Two years ago, 25-year-old Ragni Rørtveit openly criticised the oil and gas industry. Today, she’s working for Equinor. What happened, and how does she justify her decision?
Open, collaborative, courageous and caring are the four core principles that embody the spirit and energy of Equinor at its best. They guide our decisions, actions and the way we interact with others. These are qualities we expect from each of our colleagues.
Outside of Equinor we support programmes like Heroes of Tomorrow, which provide mentorship for the next generation and encourage participation in STEM subjects for girls and boys of all ages. Inside of our organisation we continually strengthen an inclusive workplace where everyone feels empowered to contribute and have their voices heard, valued and respected.
We set an ambition that by 2025, all teams in our company should be inclusive and diverse. We want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our business, partners and countries where we are present.
“To us, diversity includes experience, competence, age, gender, education, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation, disabilities, and more — all that helps shape our thoughts and perspectives. We want everyone in Equinor to feel like they are part of one team, shaping the future and delivering on our goals and mission. Embracing our differences makes us stronger. True inclusion is being able to share the stories of your life and who you are, and to feel accepted and valued. To us, inclusion is diversity in practice and a vital part of our working environment.”
Ana Fonseca Nordang, VP People and Leadership, Equinor.
