Although women in the Nordic countries have high levels of education and labour market participation, this does not automatically translate into gender equality in pensions. Efforts to promote equal pay and shared parental leave have taken us far in ensuring women’s economic empowerment in retirement. How do we also design pension systems that promote gender equality?

New Nordic research shows that multiple potential strategies and concrete measures exist to reduce the pension gap in the short term. Join Nordic and international experts in sharing solutions to develop gender-equal pension systems and labour markets.
