Fireside Chat with Former Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin
Date & Time
Tuesday, November 14, 2023, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Sanna Marin

Sanna Marin is without a doubt one of the most influential change makers of our time. At just 34 years old, Marin became the world's youngest prime minister when she was elected to Finland's top job in 2019. Her rise from cashier to national leader in just a few years blazed the political trail for young women worldwide. Her coalition, solely helmed by women, passed progressive reforms such as equal paid parental leave and the world's most ambitious climate laws aiming for carbon neutrality by 2035.

“I’m in politics because I thought the older generation wasn’t doing enough about the big issues of the future,” the former prime minister once said in an interview with Time Magazine. “I needed to act. I couldn’t just think ’It’s somebody else’s job.’”

At Celosphere, Sanna Marin will be sharing her views on gender equality, climate justice, and how she led Finland through the COVID-19 pandemic and the fallouts of the Ukraine war. Join us for a riveting discussion on what it truly takes to beat the odds and drive real change in business, politics, and beyond.
