Sweden is great. But for people of foreign/mixed roots it can be a challenge: kompetensutvisning, labor laws, and a debate about foreign talent that doesn't include foreign talent.  

-Is anyone actually talking to real people? 

-We are.

What do you think?


We are international professionals in Sweden from all over the world and from different fields. We are kompetensuvisning survivors, mixed Swedes, asylum seekers and 'Real Swedes' dedicated to inclusion of different people into the Swedish Model.

We started this to launch a labor union by and for international professionals in Sweden with foreign and mixed backgrounds. This starts by giving international professionals a voice, their own voice

as Real People.

What we do:

We use tech to provide active outreach to Real People in Sweden. We use data to create strategic information campaigns for inclusion.

We provide curated info for Real People with their work-permits, labor law, and if needed - advocacy.
