We're excited to invite you to our 2018 partner meet-up.
This time the subject for the meet-up is how to build an inclusive culture at a company. We're happy to invite Guido Guidos from Axis Communication who is an experienced Tech lead & System Developer. Guido will talk about his own experiences of coming to a new country:
As chairman of the Student Union, I was deeply involved in diversity and gender equality. I read lots of document on these subject but always had the impression that these documents ought to be redundant. They are means of making people act like humans towards other humans. That in turn, illustrates fundamental errors in organisations and their employees.
Since starting at Axis, I haven't heard anything on this nor have I given it any considerations. Everything just works. Everyone respects each others, have open minds regardless of what background we have, what religion or what gender.
I'm going to share my journey to Axis and how the company accepted me, although I have a very special background compared to most people.
The meet-up will also show the current progress with HackYourFuture - the project Foo Café is running where we teach newcomers and immigrants how to code. Right now, we're running two parallell classes with really talented people that show a lot of grit.
