Who we are

Marie Louise Sunde and Isabelle Ringnes founded the youth-led organization #Hunspanderer in Norway 2015. #HunSpanderer has had two successful campaigns addressing unconscious bias and gender stereotypes reaching millions of people. Following the campaigns we have seen a significant call for action and solutions on how to improve gender balance in the workplace. That lead us to found Equality Check.
