KAUTE talks x Aalto University: Diversity and inclusion in organisations
KAUTE talks x Aalto University is a new webinar series bringing together representatives from the industry and academia, to discuss and learn about world-shaping phenomena of our time through focused and thought-provoking presentations. This event is produced in cooperation with KAUTE Foundation.
Finnish society is becoming more diverse, and efficiently harnessing all of the available talent will enable success for everyone. Finnish companies operate in a global market, and our universities are increasingly internationalising both their faculties and student bodies. The most innovative and disruptive ideas tend to originate from interdisciplinary and diverse teams.
Many bottlenecks still remain in fostering diversity and inclusion. Gender roles continue to guide young people’s choices, and a non-Finnish name may slow down career advancement. How do multinational corporations plan and implement practices of diversity and inclusion? How can startups and NGOs from different walks of life enhance diversity and inclusion in the societies that they are embedded in?
