Her Story

A WBN Podcast

Her Story, Podcast by WBN

In 2020, while the pandemic was hitting the entire globe, we decided to reunite students around our brand new podcasts. We invited powerful women from around the world to share their paths, lessons learned, and their tips for young students. Sadly enough, this years’ graduates, and more than a couple additional generations, will start off their career in a working world still full of inequalities. We hope that with these podcasts, our listeners dare to follow their ambitions and don’t hold back.

Our first podcast is with Anne Boring on gender inequality in higher education.

Why do girls choose universities that are below their levels? Is it true that female professors are usually ranked lower than males? We met up with Anne Boring, an Assistant Professor of Economics and gender inequality researcher, to answer these questions.
