Inclusive Employment Chain

We have joined forces with a number of organisations to form the 'Chain of Inclusive Workplaces', namely SER Top Women, Talent naar de Top, Topvrouw van het jaar (Best Female Leader of the year), Equileap and WOMEN Inc. The Chain of Inclusive Workplaces is committed to supporting companies and the government to take steps towards diversity and inclusion.

The kick-off was in 2018 where Hoekstra launched the #Equality2020 initiative, a call for more male/female balance at the top of business. Subsequently, active efforts were made to introduce legislation from 1 January 2022 regarding the quota for listed organisations and targets for the largest 5,000 organisations.
