Diversity & Inclusion | Eindhoven

About the event


“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” ― Maya Angelou


We are delighted to invite you to our pre-Christmas event that will give a platform to successful and inspiring women and men. This time we chose a hot topic Diversity & Inclusion – Challenges and opportunities, which has been the center of a societal debate for past few years.

In late November, Financial Times released a new Diversity Leaders list, a unique ranking that highlights 700 corporate leaders that actively safeguard the diversity and inclusion of underrepresented groups in their workforce. The methodology was simple. FT surveyed employees of the corporation and ask their opinion on the extent to which the marginalized groups are given opportunity and represented in their company. These initiatives are still necessary to promote non-discriminatory and inclusive approaches as a best practice that is not as wide spread as one may expect.

The discussion about diversity is however not limited to our workplaces. Whether in our neighborhoods, communities, sport clubs or other social groups, we always need to revisit, analyze and consider whether we are doing enough to open our doors to those that have been systematically excluded, underrepresented or underestimated for decades, maybe centuries, either due to their race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

In order to contribute our 2 cents to this important debate we invited two inspirational speakers that will tell you their personal and professional stories that closely relate to the diversity and inclusion debate.

This event is hosted by EHV Innovation Café that takes place weekly on Thursday afternoons.

We are delighted to welcome two inspirational speakers:

Nancy Kasvosve is a corporate healthcare professional, entrepreneur and story teller. Driven by a calling to fight for social equity, she dreams of a world in which no one’s race, gender or passport does not determine the size of their dreams, and she channels this passion through her career in healthcare and several entrepreneurial ventures. Nancy is the founder and global strategic lead of Philips Women Lead, an 800+ strong network inside Philips, that is connecting women and resourcing them to drive their careers confidently.

Montaña Nieweg-Montero Alvarez is the initiator of Ambassador Network Eindhoven that supports a variety of target groups facing challenges (for example on the job market).

All ambitious women and men who want to grow (further) professionally and want to help others grow, are welcome. Whether you have a long track record at a large corporate, whether you are a student, an entrepreneur since long or just starting. Young, young of mind, experienced or less experienced.
