There is a common understanding in both nations that elevating women into leadership positions is important for business globally. But why is the process moving so slowly? Is improving work-life balance the key to having more women in leadership – or do we need to redefine what leadership means in a modern world? And what can Denmark and the US learn from each other in terms of supporting women in becoming leaders in their own lives, as well as in the workplace?
There is much the two countries can learn from one another. For example, in Denmark, more women than men complete a university degree. However, according to a World Economic Forum survey from 2021, Denmark ranked only 101 with regards to women in top management, while the U.S. ranked 31, indicating that there is a strong need in Denmark to examine barriers for women’s advancement and rethink current leadership models.
On the other hand, the U.S. ranked number 61, as opposed to Denmark’s number 25, on the issue of labor participation rates, indicating that the Danish labor market is structurally inclusive. But is that also true for the leadership level?
These and other topics will be considered during our panel discussion with all the speakers, with moderator Marie Valentin Beck, Danish Diversity & Inclusion Expert, Bureau M.
We hope you will join us for this important discussion
