Studies show that organisations consisting of people with different backgrounds, nationalities, gender and age have higher financial returns, are more creative and innovative. Materials Business Center and Minc invites you to a lunch seminar focused on why diversity matters, and how you can work with it in your organisation.
About the Speaker:
Malin Forsgren is a sustainability consultant at the organization 2050 with a strong focus on how sustainability is tightly connected to profitability in business. She has multiple years of experience from working internationally within areas such as sales, product management and business development within telecommunication. Malin has also been actively involved in child rights and was the first Secretary General for Operation Smile in Sweden. We asked Malin to brief us about the subject:
– A common misconception is that diversity is about the correct representation of different groups. It’s not about tapping a lot of boxes, but rather about identifying what your organization may need to broaden the perspective. Diversity is not about charity, it’s simply important for the company to have as positive a development as possible.
