Dutch Minister for Education Presents Action Plan for Diversity and Inclusion

“Diversity is a prerequisite for quality,” the Dutch minister of higher education, Ingrid van Engelshoven, recently said as she presented her “National Action Plan for Diversity and Inclusion” at Leiden University. “In an inclusive organisation, everyone can fully and equally participate and share in the decision-making process. I find it extremely important to create a safe learning and working environment in which all can feel at home and grow. That is what we want to stimulate with this national action plan,” Van Engelshoven continued.
