Ida is an HR Business Partner at Novo Nordisk with a specific role as the “D&I” champ – she also wrote her Master’s Thesis on the subject and is therefore on the forefront of what works and what doesn’t. She will introduce us to how Novo Nordisk works with D&I and challenge the assumption that the S in ESG can’t be measured.
