The Equality dilemma

6/19/2013 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Event Details

Female entrepreneurship in Finland and other Nordic countries is more rare than the European average. How is this possible in these exemplary countries when it comes to equality? Do female entrepreneurs hit glass ceilings before they even start – or is the public sector and its pink-collar nature narrowing down women's entrepreneurship opportunities? These questions are discussed by researcher Nima Sanandaji and panelists in this event organized by Libera and Aaltoes.
