Celebrating WorldPride and EuroGames in Danske Bank
Even though the iconic Pride Parade has been changed this year due to Covid-19, employees across the organisation, including a group of volunteers called Danske Includers, have worked hard to make sure that we can still celebrate WorldPride and EuroGames. More than 1,500 employees have signed up for internal events and activities, both physically and virtually.
Earlier this week, WorldPride was kicked off with a game of online Drag Bingo, and during the next ten days, activities such as a drag queen-hosted canal tour in Copenhagen, a Dance with Pride event, a 5 km ‘Run with Pride’ and inspirational talks will take place.
On 18-20 August, the largest ever version of the LGBTQ+ inclusive sporting event EuroGames takes place in Copenhagen and Malmö, and athletes on all levels are competing in 29 different sports tournaments. 26 employees will represent Danske Bank in events such as tennis, swimming, dodgeball and chess.

Moreover, 50 employees will contribute to the festivities as volunteers for WorldPride or EuroGames through Danske Bank’s corporate volunteering programme, Time to Give. It allows all employees across the organisation to use a workday on volunteer work.
