The Diversity Dividend: The benefits of a diverse workforce

0Shares

Drawing on both Canadian and Norwegian experiences, the conference will discuss strategies and solutions – in the world of business, education and the public sector – for reaping the benefits of a diverse workforce.

The conference will also look at some of the challenges facing immigrant communities in Norway – and how an investment in education and innovation can pay off for communities and also for the economy. There will be a focus on the expectations of the new generation of descendants of immigrants, the second generation who are born in Norway.

At the conference you will meet, hear and interact with scholars, educators, businesspeople and civic leaders, participating in a debate on diversity and the future of our cities and nations.
