We are experiencing from the board of directors that he has been clear that he has taken a wrong decision. He has been very clear, both internally and externally. He shows that he takes these issues very seriously, and undertakes to come to grips with the things that need to be improved, " she says.
" I think all of the leaders are met with criticism in different ways. The important thing from the board is that we see that we have strengthened the leadership. We will carefully follow what is happening here the next time and that we are going to deal with these challenges, it is the a and o.

you need to ask the ceo himself about, what he's done and not done. I would not comment on the nature of the questions.
– Overall, it has been neglected to deal with serious misconduct on the part of the royal dramatic theatre. It is nothing new. It has deep roots, it goes back many years in time, and it requires strong action from the theatre and there we will watch closer from the board of directors.
" this is the whole of society, there are big questions that came up in the context of the whole #metoobackstage and #tystnadtagning, to talk about the scenkonstbranschen. It is heritage and things that have been made decades back that we now need to ensure that we take a long-term responsibility to solve, and do not believe that there is no simple ”quickfix”. We have done lots of good things and obviously we have failed in certain areas, " says Ulrika Årehed Kågström.
