What is Hän?

“Hän is the inclusive Finnish pronoun that stands for equal opportunity. It’s a symbol of a better world, where people are not defined by their background or their appearance. Hän is the third-person pronoun in the Finnish language. Hän is neutral in terms of gender and social status. In 2019, Finland wants to introduce this word – and the thinking behind it – to the rest of the world. A lot still needs to be done to promote inclusivity and equality, so let’s work together for a bias-free society!”


HÄN campaign aims to communicate the equal opportunities offered by the Finnish society, equality as a Finnish value and encourage the discussions around equality. For Talent Boost equality is a key argument when attracting international talents to Finland.
