About this event

This panel discussion will be in both English & Swedish. 

Arbetsmarknaden exkluderar och missar mycket bra kompetens idag. Hur kan vi tänka annorlunda och hjälpa varandra i att bli bättre? Hur utmanar vi och ifrågasätter de normer som skapar exkluderande strukturer? Och speglar mångfald även på ledningsnivå? Varför räcker det inte med mångfald och inkludering i IT-sektorn? Varför att det viktigt att skapa tillhörighetskänsla. Hur då? Detta webinar kommer att presentera några konkreta åtgärder.

Does diversity also reflect at the management level? Why is diversity and inclusion in the IT sector, not enough? Why it's important to create a sense of belonging in all organizations. How? This Q&A will give you concrete examples

• Inclusive organizations are the winning team.
