Diversity and inclusion have been high on the political and societal agenda in Sweden for years, and at Danske Bank’s Swedish headquarters, they have been given priority for management as well.
In 2015, we made a preliminary study entitled “Danske Inclusion” in order to understand the factors in developing an inclusive work culture. On the basis of insights from the study, we changed our internal and external communications and developed a training programme that teaches current and potential leaders about important aspects of an inclusive culture such as cultural sensitivity, unconscious bias and gender theories. These initiatives showed positive results in 2015, so the programme was rolled out for all leaders and employees in Sweden in 2016.
