Diversity support for project managers : A qualitative study about how organizations offer support in managing diversity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien har syftat till att undersöka hur organisationer kan ge projektledare stöd i arbete med mångfald i projekt. En kvalitativ studie har genomförts genom intervjuer med projektledare. Tematisk analys har sedan använts för att komma fram till sex huvudsakliga teman. Dessa har sedan analyserats vilket bidrog till att skapa förståelse kring sambanden mellan aspekterna. Det som slutligen framkom av studien är att förståelsen för begreppet mångfald är tydligt avgränsat till vissa dimensioner av mångfald. Det sågs som viktigt att förstå organisationskulturen samt unika utmaningar kopplade till nya arbetssätt för att förstå mångfald och stöd i sin kontext. Men även att arbetet med mångfald är en integrerad det av det helhetsarbete projektledare gör. Stöd kan erbjudas i många olika former och kan i många sammanhang ses behöva vara informellt i stor utsträckning.

Abstract [en]

The study aims to investigate how organizations can provide project managers support when working with diversity in projects. A qualitative study has been conducted through interviews with project managers. Thematic analysis has been used to identify six different main themes. These have then been analyzed which contributed to creating an understanding of the connections between the themes. What finally emerged from the study is that the understanding of the concept of diversity is clearly limited to certain dimensions of diversity. It was important to understand organizational culture as well as unique challenges linked to new ways of working, to understand diversity and support in its context. But also to say that diversity work is an integrated part of the overall work done by project managers. Support can be offered in many different forms, and in many contexts, it may be necessary for support to be informal.
