Title: ”Där alla tänker lika blir det inte mycket tänkt” – En kvalitativ studie om mångfald och inkludering i organisationer

 

Purpose: The purpose of the study is to describe how inclusive organizations perceive diversity and inclusion, both as concepts and in terms of practical action.

 

Method: Semi-structured interviews have been conducted with representatives from six different inclusive organizations. The study has had a qualitative focus. The study's interview questions have been based on a deductive approach.

 

Conclusion: Previous research showed that there was a lack of qualitative research on diversity and inclusion work in organizations. The study showed that organizations that aim to be inclusive work actively to minimize biases that could lead to exclusion. The study also confirms that factors such as culture, climate, leadership and responsibility all play an important role when organizations work to be inclusive.

 

This study has also shown that much of the theory surrounding inclusive organizations can be translated into a Swedish context. We believe that more inductive studies on diversity and inclusion in organizations could provide a higher level of explanation, and provide other perspectives, to the work being carried out.
