Empowering Gender Equality

The Gender Equality Experience

Apply for an experience of a lifetime. Join The Gender Equality Experience and get an all-inclusive* trip to the magic country in the north, Norway.

We invite our international friends to Oslo on 3-9 March 2019 to get a glimpse of our reality. Learn why we have one of the most productive capitals in the world. And all through our gender equality goggles.

When we’re talking about gender equality, we don’t just mean cheering for equal rights and justice (although that is very important). It’s also about national prosperity and financial gain. And that is what we want to focus on during your week here. We want to take you on a journey into the magic of gender equality, and how we do it here – one of the most gender equal countries in the world.

  • Did you know that women are more important than oil for the economy, in hard cash?
  • Did you know that Norwegian laws and regulations empowering gender equality were one of the reasons why we were so well equipped when the financial crisis hit the world in 2007?
  • Did you know that working towards women having equal career possibilities, is giving men equal possibilities for family lives?


Join our journey

Even though our rugged country has come a long way with gender equality, we still have work to do. And there are many more reasons why a sustainable future involves fighting for gender equality. The world keeps getting more and more intertwined, and all countries are affected by each other. We need to find solutions that will benefit us all. We need to keep pushing the issue further and make it a priority. Because, if you thought that we were nearly there, and that the conversation was getting old, think again:

A recent report by the World Economic Forum found that it would take 108 years to reach gender equality at the current pace of social and economic change. We can’t wait for that – join our journey now!

It will be a fun and meaningful experience where you will be introduced to our reality, and hopefully we can learn from each other. We want your perspectives, your experiences and your ideas on the table. Let’s talk gender equality!

* Flights, accommodation, and all planned lunches, dinners and activities included.
