Gudbjorg (centre) owner of DEKO Design, assisted by Anna Dóra and Heida, all originally from Iceland, had a busy Friday decorating 23 cargo bicycles, four trucks – and one king-size bed on wheels – for various large corporations. As a community supporter of Copenhagen Pride, CBS made room for the pop-up, rainbow, pimp-my-ride session at the Solbjerg Plads basement car park. Photo: Birgitte Ramsø Thomsen
After five years of coordinating CBS’ participation in the Pride Parade, Jesper Bjørn (here with Ben Hales, Research Assistant at MSC, right) and other staff members took more of a back seat when CBS hit the streets for its flagship diversity event. Photo: Helen Dyrbye
As Sofie Sørensen explained (here with co-Colorful CBS board member Tore Overgaard), earlier this year, after news of cutbacks, students were quick to take action. With funding and help from CBS Students, and the entry fee covered by CBS, the organisation Colorful CBS, formed last year, stepped up to walk the talk. Photo: Helen Dyrbye
Not everyone wore CBS T-shirts. Dress codes were optional, a point Erik (AKA Eros) Hesselstrand was happy to drive home, here with Nicklas Heitman and Nicolai Sørensen. Photo: Helen Dyrbye
DJ Aviaja called the shots with a choice of rhythm & blues, violets, reds, oranges, yellows and upbeat evergreen hits! As CBS was number 91 in line, the 200+ CBS students were happy to dance, sway and occasionally lurch the day away to the music as the truck wound slowly through crowds of onlookers all celebrating human rights across the spectrum.

Cheers everyone! Luckily the gloomy weather changed overnight. No coats or hoodies were needed after all, and the ‘Love suits everyone’ message shone through loud and clear. Photos: Helen Dyrbye

    Layoffs break the crucial trust between organisation and employee

    CBS is laying off a number of employees soon, which will affect our university in different ways. When employees are fired without having done anything wrong, it shatters the trust between the organisation and employees, while also taking a toll on productivity, according to a CBS expert. Layoffs also affect the ‘survivors’, who are forced to adapt to a changed workload and the loss of cherished colleagues.
