I have worked with non-violent conflict management and diversity since 2004. My constant challenge of my job is to see how we as people, organizations and communities build walls around ourselves. To see how we divide the world into a "we" and "them", the "included" and "excluded", the "right" and "wrong".
My constant source of inspiration are all the people that gaze and go beyond these walls, and with sincere curiosity, asks "How does the world look from over there?". I have met these people in the conflict areas, in post-war societies and in countries that have been spared from war for many generations.
Thanks to these individuals and their love, strength and commitment, I believe in a world where conflict transformation is taught in all schools, where diversity is considered a necessity and where the words "I disagree" arouse curiosity rather than defensiveness.??In my work I strive to give people the tools and inspiration to become aware of where they stand and how their values and behavior affect how they perceive the world and themselves. I want to give them experiences and tools to make a difference, for themselves and people around them.

My first job was in a large hotel in Gothenburg. We who worked there came from all levels of society, different in age, sex, sexual orientation, functionality, personality, experience, interests and so on. We had one common denominator and that was our job and to give our customers the best possible service, which we did! We managed this because we were able to use our differences, in particular for problem solvning (related to heating, bomb threats, sour milk, weary days ..) and when happiness was great over good results and strong friendships. The job taught me the importance of diversity. It hurts when we clash, but it is mostly resolvable.
I want to contribute to non-discriminatory structures, workplaces and communities. To enable individuals to fit, to take place and be involved.
