Roger Courage Matthisen
Founder & Partner
I founded Courage Institute in 2018. I am a former Member of Parliament in Denmark, member of the Political Management for The Alternative and speaker on Equality and Diversity*, and my career centers business and political strategy, career & management coaching, organisational consulting with a focus on people & culture, diversity & inclusion and I have a long track record as a human rights and anti-racism activist.
Commitment, courage, co-creation, equality, trust and purpose are keywords defining my career.
I am a boardmember of European Network Against Racism Denmark, Chair of the board of ECO 6 Nordics, Boardmember of African Chamber of Commerce Scandinavia and I am a Member of Parliament for SOAD, State of The African Diaspora.
* I am the first Member of Parliament in national history to present a full national anti-racism program to combat unlawful discrimination, strengthen civil and legal rights and promote equality and diversity.
I have also pushed several progressive legislative proposals to the Danish Parliament including: an equal pay fund for the social partners of the Danish labor market to bridge the gap in our gender segregated labor market, the Icelandic model as a mandatory certification for businesses documenting that they pay equal wages for work of equal value, mandatory education in gender, equality and diversity for all public employee who are teaching from public school to high school and institutions of higher education, 14 weeks of earmarked paternity leave for the fathers as this will not only benefit our equal pay challenges and women in management but it will also strengthening the fathers family and parenting relations.
We are at your service!

I strive to build and encourage a workplace where inclusiveness is an impulse, not an initiative! But to achieve this, one must feel included and valued. That is my vision and goal for the future in business life.
