Not so long ago, the shipping industry was largely run by weathered old men in smoke-filled rooms. (Yes, some stereotypes are based on truth.) Today, the industry is undergoing a dramatic cultural transformation, largely led by DFDS, and we are dedicated to keep driving the change. We welcome everyone into every part of our business – at every level. And we encourage our employees to bring their A-game to their work while also pursuing their other passions outside of work. We strive to create an inclusive, diverse and open environment with room for everyone to be the best version of themselves and to grow.
In support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, we strive to be a ‘Caring Employer’ as expressed in our CSR strategy. That means that not only do we work to ensure the health, well-being and happiness of our employees but that we seek inclusivity encompassing differences in ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, physical and mental ability and thinking styles. We believe diverse teams make our company stronger and provide more opportunities to do good in the local communities where we operate.

The Copenhagen Pride Parade took place Saturday 17th of August, and no fewer than 50 DFDS employees with friends and family braved the bad weather to join the parade and support diversity. Here's what it looked like when we joined the celebration and took to the streets of Copenhagen.
We look forward to joining the Copenhagen Pride parade again next year.
See you there!
