I am an economist and have worked as a manager and leader for many years in the financial sector,mainly in Investment Banking, and in recent years in the HR area where my interest and focus ended up on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion - and how to make this work in practice. In 2018, I was Head of D&I at Swedbank Group and conducted workshops on the theme with 55 management teams and over 1,000 managers. 

Today, I have helped more than 70 companies (over 4 years), who want to take a big step in practice to get the full (business) potential of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. +3000 managers and leaders I have had the opportunity to train in Inclusive Leadership. I am also responsible for Diversity & Inclusion within Executive HUB's Advisory Board and am the initiator of Diversity Charter Sweden's operations in Gothenburg. I am also a mentor to Bahati, Hussam, Wissam, Veronika and Abdirizak within the non-profit organization Öppet Hus. Since 2022, I am also part of the consulting group Oxy Group, which oxygenates organizations.
