SSE students want to improve oral participation in the classroom by female students
Anja Tuneld and Athina Swahn have been awarded the Gun & Einar Larsson scholarship 2016 (GELS) for their project "Speak up! Solutions to symptoms of gender inequality".
The president of the Stockholm School of Economics, Lars Strannegård, who appointed the scholars, acknowledges that:
Anja Tuneld and Athina Swahnhave created a challenging, hands-on project, with a strong focus on personal development. The decision to address oral participation in the classroom by female students is relevant to today’s society and opens a doorway to insights that are valuable for the Stockholm School of Economics.
The Gun and Einar Larsson Scholarship offers outstanding students at Stockholm School of Economics the opportunity to create and realize innovative projects abroad according to their own design. The aim of the scholarship is to offer experience and personal development outside of the academic realm that benefits the student’s education and professional aspirations.
