Abstract [en]

This study is a bachelor thesis for the Human Recourse program at Umeå University. It is an interview study with section leaders at the Swedish Government Offices about their view on diversity and an inclusive approach. The objective is to identify their interpretation and perception of diversity and an inclusive approach, further, how it influences their work and their sections. The objective is reached by interviewing six section leaders and discussing how they perceive their work with diversity at The Government Offices, their section, additionally, how they pensive the meaning of the words diversity and inclusion. The results have been divided in to three parts; Relationship and definition, Work and Future. The most important part is the data that came from the six interviews. Interesting points in the discussion is also the Swedish laws about government employment and discrimination, the Government Offices  ‘Plan for equal rights and opportunities’ and The Department of Integration model for working with diversity. The tendencies are that they have problems in regards to defining diversity and inclusive approach but yet there are similarities in the descriptions both with each other and the official definition. What the section leaders experience as problems are mostly the timeframe, recruitment and how much working with these questions is valued. The report ends with a discussion and analysis where the results and arguments are debated.
