Having a holistic and systemic approach on change and leading the national work on diversity and inclusion, with a particular focus on intercultural and ethnic diversity, we are working to showcase why and how diversity can be a key competitive advantage for Norway and Norwegian businesses. Our core focus is on three key stakeholders to drive systemic change;

Scale, innovate and learn.
The diversity dilemma for businesses.

Norwegian businesses and organizations face two parallel challenges. On one side, organizations need to work on increasing and expanding the representation of diversity and inclusion in leadership roles and boards through providing equitable opportunities for all because it’s the right thing to do, and on the other side, working to be able to optimally utilize the resources and the expertise of a diverse workforce to create a competitive advantage. These are not necessarily mutually exclusive. We believe that through increasing the levels of diversity, and through leading diversity, organizations can build a clear competitive advantage. This is supported by multiple research papers.

We aim to work by contributing to creating a positive influence and set the agenda through increasing the competitiveness of Norway, Norwegian businesses and organizations. Following our mission, our initiatives are intended as platform resources to enhance employee awareness and advance diversity efforts within your organization. It provides you with perspectives and best practices to accelerate business success in today’s marketplace through diversity and inclusion.
