Digital Samtal is a project on a series of informative seminars that started during the hard pandemic days. In the project of Digital Samtal, Hand in Hand for Women collaborated with the distinguished organizations for the full integration of newcomer immigrant women and prevent the inequalities based on gender and migration in Sweden.
We organize informative conversations about women’s rights struggle in Sweden with the help of ´Digital Samtal´. 99 women have participated in this project during three conversations.
➢ To inform immigrant women who gathered in Svensk Konversation – Digital Fika project more about Swedish society,
➢ To speed up integration.
➢ Encouraging women in the social field by raising awareness of social rules, women’s rights and opportunities,
➢ To facilitate access for women from all regions in Sweden who participate in Svensk Konversation – Digital Fika to the information that is necessary for their lives.
METHOD OF USE IN DIGITAL SAMTAL
Speakers participating in Digital Samtal are encouraged to send their notes on their speech to Hand in Hand for Women at least five days before the presentation. The goal is to achieve this;
1) Help all participants to read and understand the Digital Samtal’s text in advance by sending an e-mail to all participants,
2) Encourage the courage to actively ask questions in Swedish about Conversation, who are aware of the subject.
The first speaker for Digital Samtal was with the Swedish women’s lobby Kvinnolobby organizational secretary Anna Stina.
Digital Samtal, made with 26 newcomer women, was conducted in a fun and educational environment with mutual issues. Based on the feedback received, it was decided to continue the digital conversation with new topics.
We organized in collaboration with ABF Norra Stockholms län the second Digital Samtal for women. The speaker was Irene Opira, Secretary-General of RIFFI. Irene presented RIFFI in general and projects that RIFFI does for newcomer women.
