At Danske Bank Group, we want to be an attractive workplace for everyone with the right competencies. We see diversity as a prerequisite for maintaining a healthy and innovative working environment and believe it is important to cultivate a staff as diverse as possible, without attaching any specific importance to gender, ethnic background, nationality, sexual orientation, religion and age.
We believe that diversity is a strength that helps to ensure the Group's access to the most talented employees. We therefore work deliberately to promote diversity.
For us, inclusiveness means that various groups of employees can pursue their careers without meeting cultural or organisational barriers. We have already achieved much in this regard, but we recognise that we still have some work ahead of us. For example, we want to have more female managers.Women in management
In December 2010 we signed the Danish "Charter for Women in management" from the Danish Ministry of Equality, and in early 2011 we published a baseline report
showing our specific goals for getting more women in management. In 2012 we published an update to the Charter and achieved our target of increasing the percentage of women in senior management positions from 19% to 20%.
We aim to have 22% women in senior management in 2015 against 18% in 2010 and we also have goals for the lower management levels.
