In December 2017, representatives from 23 agencies in Gothenburg came together to make a change. In response to the #metoo movement and #sistabreifen, we have joined forces against harassment and unequal conditions in our work places. The initiative is called Byråsamarbetet and we have 72 collaborating agencies, schools and organizations now involved, and counting.
We believe in concrete actions that lead to actual progress. The collaboration has seen the very first ‘Byråkoden’, a Code of Conduct for us to lean on in our everyday work and to help us build the safe and respectful work environment we all deserve. Where harassment, suppression techniques and injustice are not to be tolerated nor ignored again.
