Bris – Children’s Rights in Society
Bris is a politically and religiously independent children's rights organization that listens to, supports and strengthens children and young adults' rights in society. Their services offer children and young adults up to 18 years old a secure, anonymous and free way to email, chat, or call a counsellor. Since its inception, physical abuse has been a central issue for Bris but support is also about other important issues where the child is mistreated, having problems or needs support and advice from knowledgeable and empathetic adults. Tele2 partnered with BRIS already in 2007 and has since then contributed with both resources and optimization of the communications platforms that enables the core of BRIS’ operation.

Datatjej och Tjejer Kodar
The telecom workforce in Sweden is currently made up by 70 percent males. Tele2 has committed to challenge that and reach an equal gender balance. To support this firm ambition, we have launched a number of internal projects, but we also benefit from partnerships with organizations such as Datatjej and Tjejer Kodar .
Datatjej (“Data girls”) arranges meetings at Tele2’s headquarter in Kista, Stockholm, where members can connect and learn more about working within IT in a big tech company. Tjejer Kodar (“Coding Girls”) inspires young women to try out programming and arranges a number of different events in cooperation with Tele2.
