The Power of Social Change - Now's the Time! Join us at Goto 10.
In the autumn of 2017 #metoo exploded around the world and in Sweden the impact was enormous across many areas of society. To date there have been more than 50 subsequent hashtags supporting the call to end sexual harassment.
#teknisktfel (technical error) is the Swedish #metoo movement for the tech industry and revealed the magnitude of the workplace environment issues too many women face. And at the same time, most tech and IT companies undertake activitites to improve gender equality yet the number of women that go into, and remain, in these industries is declining, in Sweden and across Euruope.
Why is that and what should be done about it?
It's clear that we need to re-think the diversity and inclusion efforts to address this challenge.
In this session we will look at the #metoo movement and what it tells us about gender equality, why organizations need to get more innovative when it comes to diversity and inclusion to increase the pace of change and most importantly – how do we move forward to build more inclusion in the workplace and in society at large?
