Student Profile(s)

Inkeri Tanhua

I am working as a gender equality and diversity specialist and a researcher in a consultancy company called WoM Oy. I am also a PhD candidate at Hanken School of Economics.

What did you take away from the programme? (For example, was there something valuable or unique learned on your programme that helps you today?)

The programme provided a great opportunity to reflect my work as a gender equality and diversity specialist through feminist research. Prior having working experience, I had conducted a minor on gender studies and enjoyed it much. However, this time many traditional feminist authors seemed to be making more sense to me. I am now more confident in referring to them, which is very useful in my work. During the programme, I also had an opportunity to meet interesting researchers who were our teachers, and to discuss with wonderful co-students.
