Copenhagen is soon to be adorned in all the colours of the rainbow, with the columns at the front of Danske Bank’s HQ already transformed. We will also be raising the rainbow flag and joining in as celebrations culminate towards the end of Pride Week.
“That getting involved in Pride Week has become a tradition at Danske Bank is something we can proud of. Our participation reflects a desire to contribute to a still important debate in society – and at the same time signals that we want to have a diverse and inclusive culture that reflects the societies we are part of and where everyone should have the same opportunities. However, we are also well aware that creating such a culture requires all of us to strive towards embedding diversity and inclusion in our daily lives,” says Karsten Breum, Chief People Officer at Danske Bank.
That is why we are focusing on a series of events during Copenhagen Pride Week that will help enlighten our entire organisation about how we can support each other – all year round.
Our rainbow network and other volunteers have, for example, invited external role models to speak, while several of our leaders will also be sharing their experiences. A key message we want to send is that we all have different ways of expressing solidarity and that one form of support is not necessarily better than another.
