Our values guide our work

Keep learning

We understand our knowledge and understanding needs to be ever evolving, and therefore we value a commitment to learning – both as individuals and as an organization. We share our feedback and learnings transparently and use that new knowledge to reach the next level.


Advance inclusion

Advancing inclusion means the commitment to take action, measure progress and hold ourselves accountable for all our activities. We practice kindness, care and compassion towards each other so everyone feels welcomed and respected regardless of their background or position. We recognise we all have biases and we actively work to counteract them.

Take responsibility

We are self-directing and trusting, and allow each other the autonomy to drive results. We proactively take action and hold ourselves accountable for our decisions. We’re in this together since we strive to reach the same goals. We stay forward-thinking by seeking solutions.

Strive for impact

We have a shared ambition and interest to work for a greater purpose. We define our goals and strategy together to build a sustainable and impactful organization. We optimise our daily work to create meaningful long-term results for our team, clients, partners, and society as a whole. 

Prioritize wellbeing

We are here for the long run, so we take care of our wellbeing. We support a healthy work-life balance and offer high flexibility. Through empathy and compassion, we take the time to help one another, as well as celebrate each other’s and the organization’s wins. 

Our Structure

Inklusiiv provides customized solutions and services for organizations to strategically support them on their DEI journey. 

Inklusiiv Association is a registered non-profit,  that creates and shares knowledge about diversity, equity and inclusion and drives societal change. The association’s main focus is on research. 


Our journey

Inklusiiv started as a campaign challenging tech companies to report their diversity data for the first time in 2019. The Association was founded by former Slush Chief Curator, Katja Toropainen, and supported by a vast group of individuals, several organizations in the startup community, and influential people in business life.

Soon after launching the Association, we learned that what organizations actually need is more concrete support in advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). To address this need, Inklusiiv was founded in February 2020 to offer tailored services such as trainings, consulting, and workshops.

Since the beginning, the vision has been to build a bigger movement through fostering a community of global companies. Thank you to all who have supported us on our journey that continues.
