Virtual Roundtable feat. Katrine Marçal, Author and Journalist

Welcome to this Virtual Roundtable discussion featuring Katrine Marçal, author and journalist at Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, on how ingrained ideas about gender hold society back from developing, and how opening up for diversity can alter the future for good.

Katrine Marçal is an award-winning author and journalist. Her first book “Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner” has been translated into more than 20 languages and was hailed by Margaret Atwood as “A smart, funny, readable book on economics, money and women”. It was named one of The Guardian’s Books of the Year in 2015.

Katrine works for Dagens Nyheter, the largest broadsheet newspaper in Sweden and she was one of only a handful of European journalists to get an exclusive interview with Michelle Obama before the publication of the Former First Lady’s memoir Becoming in 2018.

In her role as a financial journalist, Katrine has interviewed many of the world’s most respected economic thinkers like Nouriel Roubini, Nassim Taleb and Yanis Varoufakis.

Her book “Mother of Invention: How Good Ideas Get Ignored In An Economy Build For Men” became a bestseller in Sweden in 2020 and will be published in the UK, US, Canada, South Korea and Italy during 2021 with more languages coming in 2021.
