Workplace Norms

FOR INCREASED NORM AWARENESS AND INCLUSION IN THE WORKPLACE

How do prejudices arise? What is a phobia? And how can we counteract these in the workplace? Studies show that more than 30% of all LGBTQI people in Sweden do not feel safe being open in the workplace, many also feel discriminated against.

Employers must work both preventively and counterproductively in the field of discrimination. As part of this work, West Pride offers tutorials for employers and employees in how prejudices and phobias arise. We provide knowledge about how thought patterns are
created and norms are maintained, as well as how to counteract prejudice and instead create an inclusive work environment.

The fact that the workplace falls into social patterns based on exclusionary norms does not mean that one has a phobia, West Pride’s self-study can, however, contribute to increased insight into how in the workplace maintain prejudiced norms.

The tutorial is divided into eight sections with a homework to be done between the sections. After the tutorial is completed, one of West Pride’s competent trainers comes to you to hold a workshop on the different steps and thoughts that may have arisen.

SECTIONS AND THEMES OF THE TUTORIAL

Step 1: What is a phobia?

Step 2: Motivation, goals and values

Step 3: The origin of the phobia
