Kvinner i et Klyngeperspektiv

Det er mye å feire for oss som er opptatt av å øke kvinneandelen i næringslivet og tilgangen på synlige rollemodeller. Men vi har fortsatt en lang vei å gå.

68-årsdag uten bursdagsbarn ❤️

23 januar 2012 feiret vi pappas bursdag med latter og moro. Han var ikke helt i toppform, og trodde han hadde fått en brokk i mellomgulvet. Samtidig var han i god form, gikk på ski, svømte, trente yoga og pilates. Vi kunne aldri drømt om at vi snart skulle miste ham. Noen dager senere fikkContinue reading “68-årsdag uten bursdagsbarn ❤️”

Stjernesludd: Et litt annerledes julebrev

2017 ble et år fylt av store kontraster. Fra et første halvår med høyt tempo, mye ansvar, kropp og hode fullt av adrenalin, hundre baller i luften, uforutsette hindre og intens jobbing til vi landet Nor-Shipping i slutten av mai. Til den totale kontrasten; det neste halvåret hvor batteriet var flatt og jeg krasjlandet skikkelig.Continue reading “Stjernesludd: Et litt annerledes julebrev”
