Co-hosted by Diversify and Network for Work.
For many immigrants, trailing spouses, and refugees in Norway, securing the dream job that matches and utilizes their skillset is difficult and at times seems nearly impossible. This reality, however, is not reserved only for “foreigners” – repats, senior workers, and even Norwegians in Norway have difficulty in securing employment.
Diversify and Network for Work have decided to host an event to shine a light on this structural problem and, more importantly, explore possibilities of leveraging people’s skills in the Norwegian market and finding ways to get around or over the stumbling blocks along the way.
You will hear from three women (Chisom Udeze, Nikol Mard, and Nada Ahmed), with three unique experiences and perspectives, yet quite similar in their ability to defy the norm and navigate the structural difficulties.
And though they will not shy away from the struggles and the reality of trying to enter the Norwegian job market, they will provide practical steps on what worked for them. The central idea here is that they will provide specific examples of how they leveraged their skills (which skills they leveraged) to stand out and ultimately build the careers that they inadvertently wanted.
This event will begin with a Panel Session, that will be moderated by Michell Mpike, the Founder of Inklusive Books. It will continue with a detailed yet swift “Master Class” presentation given by each of the speakers. Their presentations will be shared with attendees via email. Thereafter, the audience will join an interactive activity, after which we will take reflections and closing remarks for the day.
As usual, event is free for Network for Work Go-Getter members. To become a member, sign up at Network for Work.
