Working with diversity and inclusion at the labormarket to make sure everyone gets the chance they deserve
In Sweden, it takes approximately 6-9 years for immigrants until they get a job. This is mainly due to the lack of inclusivity & diversification in companies’ cultures & the limited resources that immigrants have access to such as networking, personal relationships, and reference.
Mitt Liv is tapping the most driven of immigrant girls in Sweden to launch them into the labour market. She connects with schools and principals to gain the legitimacy that many immigrants place on the education system. Mitt Liv partners with traditional companies to build mentor relationships between them and company employees, as well as to expand educational opportunities into the extracurricular space.
Recently, Mitt Liv was a guest in Ashoka Nordic's Special Podcast about Diversity & Inclusion. You can find the full interview and how Mitt Liv reflects on her change-making journey in the field of social entrepreneurship here.
