“We want to employ disabled people, but they just don’t apply”

This is a phrase Unlimited often hears and always questions. With disabled people making up 22.7% of the working age population, surely, they should be making up 22.7% of all applicants and staff, whatever your organisation? Unlimited believes a diverse team brings a broad range of perspectives and points of views. Unlimited aims to be transparent in their recruitment process, data driven and open to learning.

In this blog, Harry Murdoch, former Programme Coordinator, reflects on Unlimited’s recent recruitment process, digs into some of the diversity data around who applied and who was hired for these roles and shares findings that might help you. Published 1st June 2022.

Feminisms in the Nordic Region. Neoliberalism, Nationalism and Decolonial Critique

This book explores how feminist movements in the Nordic region challenge the increasing gender, race and class inequalities following the global economic crisis, neoliberal capitalism and austerity politics, and how they position themselves in the face of the rise of nationalism and right-wing populism. The book contextualizes these recent events in the long histories of racial and colonial power relations embedded in Nordic societies and their gender equality and welfare state regimes. It examines the role of whiteness and racism and seeks to decolonize feminist knowledge and genealogies of feminist movements in the region. Editors: Suvi Keskinen, Pauline Stoltz and Diana Mulinari.

Chapters 6, 7, 9 and 10 are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.
