Celebrating Hertie Women – Prof. Dr. Thurid Hustedt

This recording is part of a new endeavour at the Governance Post, the Shaping Tomorrow podcast. The motto of the Hertie School is ‘Understanding Today, Shaping Tomorrow’. With this podcast, we aim to talk to tomorrow’s policymakers to get their views on all that concerns our world today.

In this episode, Natalie Petit talks with yet another woman shaping tomorrow at the Hertie School, Prof. Dr. Thurid Hustedt. The duo engage in an insightful conversation about public administration, the challenges that women are faced with in policymaking circles and advice that Prof. Thurid might have for them.
