Maria Edström in the News

Dr. Maria Edström was quoted in the Chicago Evening Post story The media is a male business by Ari Roul on 28 February, 2018. The story reports on a Nordicom study of leadership of the top 100 international media corporations by Dr. Edström and Ulrika Facht (Nordicom, University of Gothenburg).

Edström said, “Men-only indicates a single-minded leadership in the media corporations. Not only because their products and services are aimed at both men and women. They are also probably missing out on competence.”
