• Maria Lindberg - Proboxer - World Champion

Maria2Maria Lindberg, the chemical engineer who left a well-paid job to put her all into the sport she loves, a sport which she was suspended from, for the rest of her life. 

Maria is today one of Swedens most appreciated speakers. Her speech "World Class Endurance" tells the story of her journey from the day that she got a brain bleed in the ring and got suspended from boxing for life, until the day, 10 years later when she managed to become a world champion. 

Today, 15 years later she is a three time, reigning, world champion in her weight class!

• Toni Petersson - CEO Oatly

TP2Toni learned to walk while travelling the world on board a cargo ship, spoke Japanese by the time he was three and then forgot it while growing up outside Göteborg on Sweden’s west coast. He spent his twenties building one of the first contemporary Japanese restaurants and bars in Europe (the multi-award winning Izakaya Koi) and the last decade in such diverse adventures as developing the design brand Koi Living, managing the sustainable real estate project Desarollos Canacosta in Costa Rica and growing the lifestyle brand Boblbee (world famous for an incredibly odd looking hard shell backpack). Prior to joining Oatly his background in the food industry was non existent, which is precisely what makes his current approach so inspiring. Toni posses a hardwired sense of entrepreneurialism, a managing style that encourages his employees to do the best work of their careers, a humble approach to taking risks that shows little respect for the word fear, and a commitment to delivering world-class execution, whatever that could possibly mean.

Rasmus Isaksson, president of DHR and twice medallist in sledge hockey at the Paralympic Games.
DHR works with issues concerning the rights of people with reduced mobility. One of our key questions is accessibility and utilization.

DHR initiated the so-called Torsdagsaktionen (Thursday activity). It aimed to influence the government to put forward a suggestion that inadequate accessibility should be added to the Discrimination Act as a new kind of discrimination. The amendment came into force in January 2015.
DHR is also the first organisation to bring a case of discrimination to the courts as we are representing an individual member in a lawsuit. The case has now reached the Supreme Court. Through rousing public opinion and influencing political decisions we can change society. We call it the politics of rights.
