Harnessing Your Superpower to Your Competitive Advantage with Ergin Özdemir – Season 2: Episode 70

Ergin Özdemir is a social entrepreneur, diversity advocate, and one of Sweden’s foremost public speakers. His approach to increasing diversity literacy is two-pronged. By working with leaders, employers, and institutions, he increases their diversity IQ so they can build, preserve, and harness the power of diverse teams. At the same, Ergin helps individuals learn how to use their diversity to their advantage when entering the workforce.

For more than 20 years, Ergin has worked tirelessly towards creating dignified opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds to, not only become part of, but also fundamentally transform workplaces. So far he has initiated around 50 internships in Sweden, made it possible for a number of students in Turkey to pursue tertiary education through scholarships, and founded the Diversity Achievement of the year.

Through his presentations and workshops, Ergin uses countless real-life examples and the latest research to show that rather than a burden, diversity in all its senses, offers a competitive edge for every organisation. All that is required is that we widen our view of where our society’s superpowers reside.
