Our Mission

We are striving to change the face of tech in the Netherlands and beyond through a new wave of diverse leadership. By 2030, our community aims to transform the tech industry by normalising data-driven DEI, enhancing cultural, gender, and neurodiversity representation, ending workplace discrimination, fostering LGBTQI+ safety, retaining international talent, and mitigating AI bias through comprehensive education and allyship.

DEI is a business enabler

Whether it’s in the workplace or society at large, we all have a responsibility to work towards a more inclusive and equitable future. DEI is a real business enabler. It’s not a nice-to-have if you are in technology, it’s a must-have.
