To the rest of the world, Stockholm may seem light-years ahead in terms of equality. But the Swedes know that, without continued efforts, the situation can quickly regress.
Host Samanda Ekman and The Local's James Savage are joined by MD of management and technology consultancy Capco's Nordic site, Anette Tånneryd, 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, Anette and Elin 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.
