Danmark Halter gevaldigt på ligestilling: her er de hyppigste fejl

Research output: Contribution to journalContribution to newspaper - Newspaper article


This month’s column addresses some typical mistakes that contribute to lackluster results when working with diversity, DEI, ESG and other equality initiatives. I begin by pointing out how Denmark’s gender equality ranking has fallen drastically on the World Economic Forum ranking list and discuss the importance of basing equality and diversity initiatives in solid knowledge rather than good intentions.

I point out that single axis approaches; thinking diversity as purely a gender equality issue; avoiding addressing power; diversity-washing (or diversity industrial complex); are just some of the reasons these initiatives fall flat.

For diversity work to succeed, it must take its point of departure in anti-discrimination and intersectional approaches, not merely gender.
