Mitt Liv Consulting Services

A leading social enterprise that has worked to promote diversity and inclusion in the labour market since 2008

Since 2008, Mitt Liv has provided training to and collaborated with employers in both the private and public sectors with regard to issues concerning diversity and inclusion. Our approach is primarily based on long-term strategic collaborations, although we also undertake one-off activities on a smaller scale as necessary.

Our services

Turning words into deeds when it comes to D&I measures is one of the greatest challenges faced by our clients – but also one of the greatest opportunities. Our diversity strategies help your organisation lower the thresholds to successful D&I activities that contribute to greater business value, increased innovation and a more inclusive workplace.

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Strategy

We provide support via strategy projects of varying scope and size, whereby we ensure that the work and activities involving diversity and inclusion have a clear connection to the overall business strategy, innovation and skills supply.

Courses & Workshops

Our courses, training programs and workshops are designed to provide in-depth knowledge and tools for different parts of your organisation in relation to diversity and inclusion.

Lectures

We regularly arrange lectures for small and large organisations in the business community and the public sector. Our standard range of lectures and how we structure them can be adapted based on the needs of the participants and your specific purpose and goals.

Mentorship in Mitt Livs Chans

We offer organisations an opportunity, through our mentoring program, to allow their employees to become mentors to an academic with a foreign background. Not only is this a concrete undertaking that contributes to the creation of a more open labour market, it is also a sound investment in the professional development of your employees!

Concrete Tools

Our tools have been designed to facilitate the practical work in an organisation in relation to diversity and inclusion, and to create a dialogue and an awareness of these issues. The tools consist of everything from training videos to a D&I game and conversation cards.

Recruitment Services

Mitt Liv has a large pool of competence to call on when it comes to recruiting international talents with post-secondary education. Through tailored solutions for recruitment days, trainee programs or advertising of vacant positions, we help you reach suitable candidates outside of the traditional recruitment channels.

Our impact is our most important driver

Mitt Liv currently has around 45 partners in our network, and we provide training to more than 6,000 people each year within our consulting activities. For us it is important that our activities contribute to our vision of an inclusive society and a labour market that values diversity, which is why we perform an annual impact assessment in our partner network and evaluate the outcomes of all our services and solutions.

FAQ

What do you mean when you talk about “diversity”?

Diversity is a term that refers to the amount of significant differences and non-normative perspectives that exist in a group or organisation. One possible approach is to base an assessment of diversity on the seven grounds of discrimination (gender, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation and age) as well as other factors such as experience, educational background and language skills, although diversity is really much more than this – in principle, diversity relates to everything that constitutes a significant difference and makes a person unique in relation to his or her surroundings.

What do you mean when you talk about “inclusion”?

Inclusion is a term that refers to the active actions that individuals encounter at their workplace every day – behaviours, personal treatment, group norms, leadership styles and structures – which determine the extent to which individuals can be themselves while also feeling that they belong to the team or group. At an inclusive workplace, individuals are treated as part of the fellowship of the group while also being valued for their uniqueness.

What is the difference between diversity and inclusion?

We usually say that diversity has to do with the strategic work undertaken by an organisation to ensure that there is a mix of significant differences – and thus different perspectives – represented in the organisation. Inclusion relates to the behaviour we practice each day at our workplace, and how we interact with each other. Research shows that the existence of both diversity and inclusion in an organisation can contribute to a greater level of innovation, creativity and well-being, which in turn contributes to higher profitability and greater business value.

Does Mitt Liv work with different types of diversity, for example gender equality?

We work with aspects of all 7 grounds of discrimination, and gender equality is one of these aspects. We have a broad and holistic view of the term diversity, which means that we work with diversity from a broad perspective (please take a look at how we define diversity in the question above). Naturally we provide support to your organisation based on the aspects we identify together as areas where there is a need for more focus.

Do we have to be a Mitt Liv partner to be able to use your services?

No, you don’t. However, we recommend a partnership as the optimal form of collaboration when the services stretch over an extended period (12 months or more), as a partnership provides a structure that enables us to ensure a proactive and long-term work process. But if a partnership doesn’t feel like the right form of collaboration for your activity then of course you are welcome to use our services without actually becoming a Mitt Liv partner.

Are your methods scientifically based?

Yes, to the extent that research exists within a certain area or subject, we use and refer to such research in our activities, and we constantly keep up to date on the latest developments. Our courses refer to credible studies and meta-analyses in many respects. Mitt Liv also has an active and close collaboration with researchers throughout Sweden, and this has aided us in many respects, including during the development of our impact measurement tools and the content of our mentoring program, as well as in various consulting projects.

Do you offer courses and lectures digitally?

Yes, of course! Mitt Liv has worked on providing a number of our services digitally since 2007. This experience and knowledge means that our current digital solutions are flexible, user-friendly and interactive. Please feel free to contact us – our staff will be delighted to tell you more!

In which languages can you provide your services?

Our consulting services and our mentoring program are available in Swedish and English. We can also offer translations to other languages for a number of our tools, such as our self-directed courses and our D&I game.

Can we purchase individual lectures?

Yes, you can. Please feel free to contact us – our staff will be delighted to tell you more!
