Anu is a journalist originally from Finland, now based in New York City. She has lived in the United States since 2008, and her work has appeared in the New York Times and The Atlantic. She also worked at Fortune Magazine as a visiting reporter through the Innovation Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University.

In Finland she has held many positions ranging from managing editor to columnist, features writer to news reporter, lecturer to on-air commentator.

Her book “The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life” compares everyday life in the United States with life in the Nordic region.

Anu will talk about her book and we hope for a lively Q&A about issues affecting women in the Nordic countries, the US and elsewhere.
