"We need to continue driving equality because if we don't have targets or a vision we can also fall behind."
To the rest of the world, Stockholm may seem light-years ahead in terms of equality. But the Swedes know best of all that, without continued efforts, the situation can quickly regress.
Host Samanda Ekman and The Local's James Savage are joined by Managing Director of management and technology consultancy Capco, Anette Tånneryd, and Ericsson veteran and co-founder of Stockholm-based Lennox PR agency, Elin Ahldén, to discuss how Stockholm can continue on its upward trajectory towards equality.
Both born and raised in Sweden, the two also spent many years living and working in the United States before returning to home soil. From the famous latte pappas to universal daycare, they discuss the reasons that drew them back and why, for them, it simply "makes sense" to be in Stockholm.
