We then had the presentation of module 4 by Mobilizing Expertise AB Sweden which was about Promotion of Diversity and Non-discrimination.

There was brainstorming about what is culture and described the Iceberg module that comprised of both visible and non-visible attributes. There was then discussion about discrimination and interculturality as a competence.

Culture- multicultural society, working teenager culture and culture clashes


Culture clashes is when the visible Iceberg attributes meets the non-visible attributes:

  • Normal/ abnormal
  • Acceptable/ Not acceptable
  • Cultural clashes in the workplace


Then there were shared examples from different participants.
