Our progress
All for equality
For us it is a given that we are all entitled to equal rights. Whoever you are, wherever you're from, however old you are and whatever you believe in. Here at NA‑KD, we are reaching out to millions of people every day – most of which are young women. We believe we have the responsibility to promote these fundamental human rights values, to empower women, and be an advocate for all kinds of equality.
Amplifying women’s voices
We aim to be a platform that amplifies women’s voices. By using our business and social channels to give space to customers, content creators and influential people, we want to let women share their own stories and what is important to them. Working with thousands of creators from around the globe, we will continue to share the perspectives of a diverse group of people.
NA-KD Art
NA-KD Art is a limited edition collection that celebrates creativity with a more avant-garde aesthetic. In short, it is wearable art. Each drop is presented in collaboration with a female artist who leads the creative direction and interprets our designs in her own way.
NA-KD by You
NA-KD by You is an annual concept where we co-create a collection together with our customers. Using our community of several million people, we ask them to design, name, model and create content for these drops. As one of our community models said: “Clothes aren’t going to change the world, but I hope people wearing them will.” And so, we hope that by embracing the wishes and creativity of our community we can make everyone feel included.
Creating an inclusive workplace
The more diverse a company, the better it performs. According to research performed by McKinsey, companies that rank in the top quartile for gender diversity in executive teams are 25% more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the bottom quartile. The research also showed that companies in the top quartile for ethnic and racial diversity are 36% more likely to outperform industry peers. We are working hard to ensure that NA-KD is an inclusive workplace. Beyond hiring a really international team - we currently have employees from more than 30 countries - we are also hosting diversity and inclusivity training sessions for the team. Our long-term goals can be read in detail above.
When it comes to amplifying women’s voices in the industry, we know that two thirds of the workforce is female. But this ratio is not represented at executive levels. At NA-KD we are proud to say that 42% of our executive team and 60% of our leaders are women. Find out more about how we work with this here and our progress in our latest Sustainability Report.
Always improving
At the start of 2021 we performed an independent, internal investigation of our working conditions at NA-KD. Now we are working hard to improve all the areas that were identified to become a better employer and brand.
You can read more on this in our Sustainability Report.
Decent work for all
The fashion industry employs over 75 million people worldwide. We are well aware of the struggle to achieve good working conditions, wages and livelihoods in every single country where fabrics and garments are sourced. But it is a challenge we take head on. We are continuously improving these aspects for all people working in our value chain, in close collaboration with our industry peers.

Our role in society
For many years, diversity in fashion has meant using a non-white face in marketing campaigns. But today, fashion companies are responding to pressure from customers, employees and other stakeholders to do more. Instead of relying on eye-catching imagery, they must proactively advocate for diversity and inclusion. Taking a public stand on topics relating to diversity and inclusion is something that we are proud of at NA-KD. And supporting wider social issues in alignment with our brand values is close to our hearts.
Equal rights for all
We believe in equal rights for all people. That everybody, regardless of ethnicity, gender identity, sexuality or religion should be treated fairly and have the same opportunities in life. That we all should be able to live a life free of oppression, harassment or hate. Sadly, this is not the world we live in today. But we acknowledge our responsibility to contribute to a future where this is the case. To educate and enlighten people. To give voice to underrepresented voices. To be a force for change. Through our actions, our messages and our collaborations. We hope that you will join us in this fight.
Everyone’s right to love freely
We support the LGBTQIA+ community by partnering with RegnbĂĄgsfonden - a Swedish organisation that advocates for LGBTQIA+ rights. We are also proud supporters of Pride and have hired content creators from the community to create films in which LGBTQIA+ people could tell their stories. We have also donated money to the United Nations Free and Equal initiative in the past.
Inspire girls to become whoever and whatever they want
The United Nations has released 17 Sustainable Development Goals. One key lever to achieve them is for more girls to attend school and get a higher education. One way we are trying to make this happen is to donate money to and support the Girl Effect. Their work is helping to unlock the power of girls through media. Giving girls and young women the confidence and curiosity to become whoever and whatever they want.
Supporting young women’s rights and mental health
Unfortunately, mental health continues to be a challenge for many young women around the world. Anxiety and depression is spiking, and it is easy to feel alone in this experience. That is why we are investing in research and donate to non-profit organisations that support this topic. One example is our continued support of Gurls Talk, a community-led non-profit dedicated to promoting the mental health and wellbeing of adolescent girls and young women. We are also collaborating with thought-leaders and speakers in this area to bring useful tips and personal experiences to our huge community in social media.
Supporting our local community
Our design and creative process results in a lot of samples. Samples that are tested and screened by our purchasing department, but also used when shooting images for our website and social media channels. We donate most of these clothes to charities, both to second-hand shops and local shelters that support vulnerable women - including homeless women, victims of domestic violence and women exposed to trafficking and prostitution.
