At LS Retail, we believe good business begins with good people.
We recognize the value that diverse experiences and perspectives bring to the development of innovative work, and aim to celebrate all of the LS Retail people that make that work possible. However, diversity and inclusion within the Icelandic labor market and much of the global tech community remains a major issue as some demographics experience disproportionate practical and social barriers in their career journeys. Therefore, LS Retail aims to help prospective leaders overcome these barriers and meet their full potential through the Future Leaders program. Not just for our company, but in hopes of a better future for our field and communities as a whole.
