Föreläsning och panelsamtal: Gender equality in the Nordics

Missa inte en spännande föreläsning med isländska Maríanna Traustadottír som ger oss en bakgrund om varför Island räknas som världens mest jämställda land. Hon berättar bland annat om ny isländsk lagstiftning gällande lika lön för lika arbete och ”Women’s day off”. Efter föreläsningen blir det panelsamtal med VK:s Ola Nordebo.

Föreläsning och panelsamtal sker på engelska.
Plats: Hörsal A, Lindellhallen, Umeå universitet.

Gender equality has been a major question of debate for a long time, and it is present in daily discussion now more than ever. Join Utrikespolitiska Föreningen Umeå and Föreningen Norden – Nordiskt informationskontor i Umeå for our afternoon lecture and panel discussion on the subject of gender equality and the pay gap in the Nordics.

We welcome special guest Marianna Traustadottír, gender equality consultant at the Icelandic Confederation of Labour (ASI) who will hold a talk on the subject. After this, Ola Nordebo, political editor in chief at local newspaper Västerbottens-Kuriren, will help moderate the panel where these questions among others will be discussed:

What challenges or obstacles have to be overcome in Sweden to achieve equal pay? What solutions can be applied to cope with these challenges and obstacles? How can the Nordic countries cooperate on gender equality in the labor market? In what way can Sweden and the Nordic region influence gender equality from an international perspective?

Välkommen! Velkomin! Welcome, and bring your friends!

The event is hosted in English and takes place at Hörsal (auditorium) A, Lindellhallen at Umeå University.
