A statement from the union said she would bring plenty of experience dealing with organisations and trade unions, and that she was unanimously chosen by the organisation’s election committee.

The committee also proposed Kristin Dæhli as deputy chairwoman. Dæhli is a board member of the Forskerforbundet and has been an active union organiser since 1986, the Forskerforbundet said.
