Nordic approaches to gender equality in the labour market are gaining more and more interest worldwide. However, the Nordic labour markets continue to be sex-segregated, with a persistent gender pay gap and barriers for women to reach leadership positions.

The tools that have worked to achieve current levels of labour market participation won’t work to take us to the next stage of gender equality.

What instruments are needed now?

Listen in and join the debate between the five Nordic Ministers of Gender Equality and two experts in the field: Dr. Lynn Roseberry and Dr. Mari Teigen, who will address the challenges that remain.

The debate is moderated by Brigid Schulte, award-winning journalist and author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love & Play When No One has the Time.
