About the charter

The Danish diversity charter was launched in 2011. 

The Association New Dane established the Danish Charter for Diversity with support from the Danish Ministry for Children, Gender Equality, Integration and Social Affairs.


The Danish Charter for Diversity is the unifying body of several regional and local charters in Denmark. The Copenhagen Diversity Charter was launched in 2011 and reached 500 signatories in less than two years.

In 2014 the experience from Copenhagen was passed on to the second and third city of Denmark, Aarhus and Odense, which set up diversity charters of their own with 640 signatories between them.
