Scandinavian business events you do not want to miss this month
DKUK talking cultural diversity (25 February)
Cultural diversity is a poignant topic in post-Brexit Britain, but the debate will not stop there. What roles do faith, gender and ethnicity play in the modern workplace, and how should employers handle these issues? These questions and more are on the table this month as the UK-Nordic business community embraces change.
Gowling WLG, 4 More London Riverside, SE1 2AU, London, UK.
SHE Conference (5 March)
Europe’s leading gender diversity conference will gather executives, investors and politicians in Oslo this spring. Norway leads the way on many fronts when it comes to attempts to secure gender equality. But what’s in store for the future, and how can business operators benefit from supporting women in the workplace?
Sonja Henies plass 2, 0185 Oslo, Norway.
Polar Bear Pitching (12 March)
What better way to test the hotness factor of a business than to stick it into ice, founder and all? Tech entrepreneurs get to prove their bearings in icy water – literally – while schmoozing with potential partners during this event that coincides with Virtual Reality Nordic 2020. Non-icy networking opportunities are also on offer at the events, which all take place in the Finnish tech hub of Oulu.
Erkki Koiso-kanttilan katu 1, 90570 Oulu, Finland.
Nordic Smart Cities (19 March)
Nordic cities have a solid track record when it comes to weaving in the community factor through planning. However, with ever more transient communities come ever more challenges. How to glue it all together to make cities that work better? It’s widely recognised that technology sits at the heart of the transition, but what about the human factor?
Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Amager Boulevard 70, Copenhagen 2300, Denmark.
