Amsterdam Circle - Inspiring event held about Diversity & Inclusion at September 22nd

Circle Amsterdam – Retrospect event Diversity & Inclusion

Last September 22nd VCV Circle Amsterdam proudly hosted her 2nd event this year. This time our venue was The Extra Mile in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost that warmly welcomed us in their start-up incubator. 

After the kick-off by Saskia Maas, our alumnus Yesim Candan, amongst others a speaker and columnist for RTL Nieuws, lead us through the insights of Diversity and Inclusion. She gave us an insight on the topic in general and how the (business) world is dealing with this at the moment.

On top of that she shared with us how she has experienced this over the years herself and illustrated that with various lively examples. Ranging from accepting a job offer and friendly inquiries on her new form of contract by her friends, to the choice for one of her children’s soccer club and the thoughts behind that. 

Due to the open and interactive character of our gathering there was room for sharing our own experiences among each other. It soon became apparent that every single one of us makes an effort to work on a more accepting and diverse environment by respecting each other’s cultural background. 

VCV Amsterdam was more than delighted that we had a beautiful mix of current Nyenrode students and alumni attending.

We hope to see you next time too!
