Gender Equality in Business

Gender equality is very evident in Denmark. Scandinavian countries boast the highest percentage of working women in the world. In Denmark 75% (2008) of women work compared with 60% (2008) in the United States. Danish men and women typically have a modern attitude towards women in the work force. Foreign business women can expect to be treated the same as foreign business men. A foreign business woman's marital status will not affect her treatment within business and social settings.

The ready availability of daycare in Denmark means that women are able to continue their careers while children are still quite young.

Foreign business men with gender issues should leave these issues at home because they will not be welcomed in Denmark. Don't be surprised if the high ranking executive you are dealing with is a woman.
