1.3 c. Gender Balance within Landsvirkjun 

The graph shows the number of men and women who work at Landsvirkjun, in Krafla and Þeistareykir power plants. The graph does not take into account the employment rate and therefore does not refer to the actual number of jobs at the power plants, but only the gender of employees of Landsvirkjun in these two power plants. At the beginning of 2019, there were no employees of Landsvirkjun stationed at Þeistareykir, but the employees of Krafla attended to it. 

At the beginning of 2022, there were 26 employees in Krafla, 23 men and 3 women. This is the same number of employees and gender ratios as in 2020.
