Identify and Act (Se och
agera) - Interfem's current project
From January 1 to December 31 Interfem is carrying out a project
called "Se och agera" with funding from Ungdomsstyrelsen. The
project aims to prevent and combat racism and sexism in the
workplace and particularly focuses on strengthening the role and
influence of racialized* women and racialized transpeople within
unions. Work will be carried out with unions in order to improve
and extend their work on equality and diversity. This will be done
through providing the gender equity and diversity officers of
respective unions training and on how to change and counteract
racism and sexism in the workplace and how they, in turn, can train
Welcome to Interfem's lunch
At the lunch gathering Interfem will present its project on the
prevention of racism and sexism in the workplace. It would be great
to have you at our gatherings and share with us your experiences in
the workplace or while trying to get work of racism and sexism or
how you have responded to them.
The goal with the lunch gatherings is to create a space where
racialized* women and/or racialized transpeople can create both a
support group and a network and help each other in getting started
in work life.
Place: Medborgarplatsen's library,
Medborgarplatsen 2. T-bana Medborgarplatsen.

Upcoming lunch gatherings:
Have you faced racism and sexism in
your workplace and wanted to respond to it?
Do you want to tell us about the racism and sexism that exists
in your workplace? Interfem is gathering stories on how racism and
sexism are expressed in the workplace in order to be able to
identify the problems that exist and come up with solutions and
preventive strategies. The stories that will be gathered will be
used as the basis of training material that Interfem will develop
during 2013. The training materials will be directed to union
representatives with the aim to strengthen their efforts to combat
and prevent racism and sexism in their workplaces.
