Proud to be a part of Copenhagen Pride

Taking pride in our people

Our 'Wave of Pride' network was started by our Event Operations Manager Kasper Wilquin to work on initiatives that are inclusive of LGBTQ+ people in DFDS. We believe that a diverse workforce helps us grow stronger as a company. Hear more about Wave of Pride in the video.

DFDS Moving with Pride

Moving with Pride

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.

What being a caring employer means to us

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.

Copenhagen Pride Parade 2019

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.

Copenhagen Pride Parade 2022

Saturday 27th of August was all about good vibes and love as we celebrated diversity. A dedicated group of colleagues met up to represent DFDS in the Copenhagen Pride Parade 2022 to mark how we are participating in the movement of being respectful, tolerant, and more open-minded to all facets of people.
