Introducing New Diversity Ideas

Ergin Ozdemir

Many conversations about diversity focus on the clear deficiencies in representation and invitation around gender and race. In this conversation with Ergin Ozdemir we discuss Ergin’s experiences emigrating from his native Turkey to Sweden and the struggles he had as an immigrant. Ergin also works with companies to show them the value of hiring people on the autism spectrum, a fascinating way to embrace neuro-atypical experiences into the work place. 
 
Without diversity, we are all poorer. Listen to Ergin Ozdemir demonstrate the richness we can embrace when we connect outside of our own groups.  

Ergin Özdemir is a social entrepreneur, diversity advocate, and one of Sweden’s foremost public speakers. His approach to increasing diversity literacy is two-pronged. By working with leaders, employers, and institutions, he increases their diversity IQ so they can build, preserve, and harness the power of diverse teams. At the same, Ergin helps individuals learn how to use their diversity to their advantage when entering the workforce.

Through his presentations and workshops, Ergin uses countless real-life examples and the latest research to show that rather than a burden, diversity in all its senses, offers a competitive edge for every organisation. All that is required is that we widen our view of where our society’s superpowers reside.
