Our culture is founded on equality, diversity, and inclusivity and we promote and foster these in our entire value chain

Marimekko’s culture and working environment are founded on equality, valuing diversity, and inclusivity. Discrimination in any form is prohibited at Marimekko. We want to provide a safe, caring, communal and respectful working environment for all of our employees. Any issues relating to potentially inappropriate behavior are taken seriously and investigated in accordance with set processes. We promote equality based on our equality plan, provide training for managers, and measure success with the results of employee engagement surveys, among other things.

Equality and authenticity have been important values for Marimekko since its early days, and we want to actively promote diversity, equity and inclusion in its communities. Supporting inclusivity through choices in imagery and representation is a constant and consistent part of Marimekko’s marketing activities. In addition, Marimekko works with a wide range of models, influencers, and creatives to make sure that the company fosters diversity for example in age, size, gender, and ethnic background.

In 2023, we incorporated even better the diversity, equity and inclusion perspectives into Marimekko’s people processes, among others. In addition we continued the official partnership with Helsinki Pride, created omnichannel content and collaborations to support the LGBTQIA+ community as well as worked with a wide range of models, influencers and creatives.
