National Dialogue Network of Diversity Officers
Leiden University took the initiative for a National Dialogue Network of Diversity Officers. The main goal is to create a platform of knowledge and experience related to the development and implementation of policies on diversity.
In addition, the network can serve in an advising, agenda setting, and strategic function in the development of policies at national level. Almost all Dutch universities are represented and they recognize the value of the network and the potential for developingf a national platform in the future. The National Dialogue Network can also complement other organisations that are focused on diversity and inclusion in higher education, such as the National Network for Female Full Professors (LNVH), and the new platform Diversity in Science.
