About the project

The program is part of an EU-funded project to increase the digital competence and competitiveness of companies in Värmland. During the project, we developed the training initiative The digital movement which in collaboration with technology, The Yes Way and Karlstad University's Uppdrags AB will carry out the courses.


Equality, diversity and inclusion

Ongoing during the Digital Shift, you as a participant also get the opportunity to develop your knowledge and awareness, by delving deep into areas such as equality, diversity and inclusion, in various themes and areas that you have the opportunity to apply further practically in your work and organization. Equality, diversity and inclusion are crucial for companies' long-term success and if the argument is reversed, a lack of equality, diversity and inclusion can negatively affect a company's ability to innovate and develop new products and services. There are several examples of failures that could have been avoided if different individuals and perspectives had been involved in the process, such as voice recognition software not recognizing certain voice types or artificial intelligence used for recruitment but discriminating against candidates.
