Three cheers for Woke Capitalism: Tuesday 16 August, 15.00-15.45 at 'Hovedkassen' in Copenhagen City Hall.

There has recently been a flurry of popular books denouncing global, cynical C-suite capitalists, who exploit diversity and fake corporate morality in order to maintain their position of power in a highly exploitative system. Interestingly, these complaints can be heard – of course in somewhat different forms – both on left-wing community radio stations as well as on prime time Fox News. At this event, three panel members will apply a form of strategic naivety to discuss whether ‘woke capitalism’ actually exists, and what civil society activists can do to protect their movements from openly exploitative co-optation of their causes by PR and marketing strategists. Discussants include Carl Rhodes, whose book Woke Capitalism (2021, Bristol University Press) offers a seminal critique of programmes to reengineer democracy for corporate purposes, and Danish journalist Mathias Sindberg, whose recent series of articles on woke capitalism in Information proved to be enough of a sting to provoke the CEO of Mærsk and the communications officer of Philip Morris to write rejoinders.


Creating Pride without Pinkwashing: Wednesday 17 August, 19.30-20.30 at Vartov.

"It is easy to complain about problems such as pinkwashing, but how can we hold corporations accountable and how can we create lasting and meaningful change? This workshop makes an active contribution by finding new solutions that are actionable and inspire more sustainable corporate support of PRIDE events, beyond one-time donations for a positive marking effect. We encourage participants to see this problem from many different points of view, critically examine the often taken-for granted social norms that support it and to co-create new ways changing such them – and so addressing the problem with it."


Creating LGBTQIA+ inclusive workplaces – cases and practices from Danske Bank, Coca-Cola, Mærsk, Google, ISS, and CBS: Friday 19 August, 08.30-11.00 at the Danske Bank Auditorium, Solbjerg Plads, CBS.
Sign up is required for this event, just follow this hyperlink!



"Companies, with documented experience working with and for diversity and inclusion in their organisations, share knowledge and insights during this year’s Copenhagen Pride Week. We hope that workplaces, especially those that may lack the capacity to work with D&I more systematically, will find inspiration and leave the event with new ideas for initiatives."
