The next generation of diversity leaders. 

Our survey of non-EU workers facing deportation for minor errors (kompetensutvisning) has  been published over 30 times in the last year, including internationally

But what about from the employer's perspective?  

At the end of our survey, there is an optional question, out of 600+ (and growing) foreign workers responding to our survey, they were given the chance to nominate a person and/or company who they felt really did something out of the ordinary to help them.

Question #42 (optional): We have learned that many 'kompetensutvisade' have employers that really help - is your current employer someone who helps you with this situation? Do you want to nominate them for an Award?"

60+ employers, nominated by their foreign employees.

These are all success stories  for diversity,  talent, and Sweden,  across cultures. 

We want to celebrate the best employers of foreign talent, and have them tell their story. We call this the Kompetens-IN-visar Award. 

This event is for anyone, employer, foreign talent, Swedish, whatever - who wants to take a moment, and celebrate the next generation of leading diversity in Sweden. 

This is event is part of a non-profit, non-partisan initiative for diversity in Sweden.
