Is diversity really necessary?

Equality, diversity, feminism. Quota for women in the workplace. Women's marches. These are hot topics in politics and media… But are these things really necessary? Shouldn't a company be free to choose the person they like most? Are quota effective and how do managers change business cultures? We dare you to speak up and discuss with our experts, so we can finally answer the question: are we already equal?".

The seminar is meant for both male and female students and non-students.

With Sezen de Bruijn (Business developer at Women Invest), dr. Marloes van Engen (TiU) and Karin Thomas (Strategy consultant and founder of Thomas Consulting).
