In 2018 31 percent of BankNordik’s managers were women, and in 2019, the number was 42 percent.
This means that the Faroese bank has successfully managed to give both sexes a more equal representation among the managers, something which other banks on the Danish market struggle with, according to finanswatch.dk.
BankNordik says that the bank supports the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals, including goal number 5: Gender equality.
– We’re confident that gender equality is a condition of our consortium’s continued development and our ability to reach sustainable and good results as a business. For this reason, it has been our goal that both sexes must be represented by at least 40 percent of our managers, the bank writes on social media.
