woman-446671_960_720.jpg

We call Tove Dahlgren, the Acting CEO of AllBright, a non-profit based in Stockholm, Sweden, to chat about gender and diversity within the senior tranches of the Swedish corporate sector. Listen in as we discuss "naming and shaming" companies, campaigns on university campuses, and the trends and challenges of working towards a more equal, diverse and creative business culture. We also spend some time reminiscing about formative pieces of work that have been influential in our lives.   

Stuff we mention: Check out AllBright's reports here, and Anne-Marie Slaughter's The Atlantic article (July/August 2012) "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" here.  

Episode 7 - Weaving Towards Fair Prices

This episode we call Delfina Par Cotuc, a Mayan artisan and weaver in Lake Atitlán, Guatemala. We discuss the artists' co-operative she works with and a non-profit, Ethical Fashion Guatemala, focused on ensuring fair prices for locally-made products that are sold for outrageous prices online - with funds not trickling down to the makers and weavers.      For more, see Ethical Fashion Guatemala.   Photo courtesy of Ethical Fashion Guatemala.
