Nordea is a proud partner of Pride in the Nordic capitals

Nordea takes a stand for equality and human rights, and we are proud to announce that we are partnering with Pride in the Nordic capitals again in 2020.

Nordea strives to contribute to a society where diversity is seen as a strength and everyone has equal rights and opportunities. This makes Pride a natural partner for Nordea.

“Nordea is committed to being inclusive towards all our employees and customers. Pride is not only about celebrating diversity – it’s also about sending an important signal that we all, regardless of our gender, sexual orientation, or lifestyle, have the possibility to fulfil our dreams and everyday aspirations,” says Frank Vang-Jensen, President and Group CEO of Nordea.

Pride 2020 runs from June to September in the Nordic countries. Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic Pride organisers have taken a new approach to this year’s events. The majority of activities will be held online, offering a wide range of virtual events like seminars and meetings, online concerts and even digital parades.

Nordea wants to be a partner to count on in both good and difficult times, and we will continue our partnership with Pride and find new ways to contribute this year, even if the live events have been cancelled.

Nordea is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, and together with local Pride organisations, we will follow all health and safety guidelines from local authorities. As with all events that Nordea organises or participates in, we will do all we can to ensure the health and safety of our employees and our customers.

At Nordea, work with diversity and inclusion is high on our agenda and involves employees and teams across the bank. Colleagues in all our markets have joined forces in our LGBT+ Employee Resource Groups, which help us further raise awareness of the topic at our workplaces. This shows our commitment to equality, human rights and inclusion across Nordea.
