Working in a diverse environment
The more diverse a work environment is the more creative and innovative it will be. This in turn promotes quality of education and research, which is why Leiden University is committed to equal opportunities for each individual, whether these are opportunities for appointment, for promotion, or to optimally combine work and care.
To better embed this priority within our organisation, the Executive Board has formulated a Diversity and Inclusiveness Work Plan. The plan focuses among other things on promoting a gender-conscious appointment policy.
We have set out our perspective on diversity in an online dossier: the Diversity Dossier. There you can read what we have achieved so far and what our objectives are for the future regarding diversity and inclusiveness.
Leiden University is the first Dutch organisation to appoint a diversity officer: Dr Isabel Hoving. Together with the Diversity Office, Dr Hoving initiates and coordinates all diversity-related activities.
If you have any questions about the diversity policy or if you are curious about the activities of the Diversity Office, please contact the Diversity Office.
