DEI research

The Inklusiiv ry is a non-profit, registered association that conducts DEI research and shares knowledge about diversity, equity and inclusion to drive societal change. Explore our newest research below.

There is a lack of DEI research.


That’s why we are committed to conducing DEI research to improve awareness and knowledge around DEI topics.

From the beginning, our core mission has been to contribute to a more inclusive society by creating and sharing knowledge relating to diversity, equity and inclusion. We research and develop new DEI knowledge and make available the latest insights from across the world. These projects will further enrich the DEI knowledge & data available and help companies to understand the benefits of promoting DEI.

Inklusiiv ry’s vision is supported by the existence of Inklusiiv Oy as working with companies and helping them to advance DEI is one concrete way to make the change happen in Finland.

We are on an on-going basis on looking for potential collaborators and research partners for continuing our work in research and insights. Contact us at if you would like to chat more!
