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.

Guide to Inclusive Recruitment

Our Guide to Inclusive Recruitment can either be used for training purposes and/or as an aid in a recruitment process. The guide contains facts, helpful tips, warnings and aids and tools that are designed to help the user establish and maintain an inclusive process from start to finish.
The first module introduces the aim of inclusive recruitment and why it is important, and the subsequent modules follow the various steps in the recruitment process: needs analysis, advertising, selection, interview and final decision.

Scope: 5 modules x 1 hour.

Guide to Measuring Diversity and Inclusion

Our Guide to Measuring Diversity and Inclusion provides you with access to a large number of parameters on which you can base your measurements, background facts regarding the various parameters, and instructions regarding what you should think about – for example, communication about the purpose of the measurement, recommendations regarding the analysis of data, FAQs and answers to these, and tips regarding tools that can facilitate your daily work with inclusion.

Training videos

As a tool that provides a quick and cost-effective means of spreading the dialogue regarding diversity and inclusion to all your employees, Mitt Liv offers a series of short training videos that address six different knowledge areas. The videos are presented by our consultants and are available in Swedish and English.

Scope: The package contains six videos on different themes. The videos are 4-7 minutes long. The videos are also accompanied by questions for discussion and reflection which are designed for use in the organisation’s different work groups, as well as instructions for how the videos can be used in different contexts.

D&I game

Our D&I game is designed as an easy-to-use tool in connection with meetings, workshops or training courses. The aim is to promote an inclusive culture at the workplace and create a widespread dialogue and basic understanding of diversity and inclusion throughout the organisation. The game is available in digital or physical format.

Scope: The game consists of 60 questions divided into three categories – 20 fact-based questions, 20 discussion questions and 20 dilemma questions.

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!
