Talent Night is back.

Talent comes from all backgrounds, all levels of education and every country on the planet. Workplaces are becoming more and more international. All those cultures together form one of the greatest assets any company can have; human capital. But it can be difficult to accomodate all those different cultures. At times they clash. So this month we will look at how we can make our workplaces more inclusive. We will learn from recruiters, hr-staff and coaches what little changes we can make and how great the effect can be. Opportunities for all, that is what the Thursday Gathering Talent Night stands for.

This month, Talent Night coincides with the Dutch Week against Racism. It is not something we as a society talk about easily, but it is something we can only smoke out together. By creating serendipitous connections during the Thursday Gatherings, we have taken the first step to connect without bias or prejudice. We are looking forward to hearing from you what the next step will be.
