Workplace pride

Date: Time: 13:00 Location: Zwijsen Building, Tilburg University

We invite all colleagues and students to join the Workplace Pride event. We aim for an informal gathering where we can meet, share experiences, listen to contributions, and enjoy drinks and bites. We are curious to know if there is indeed a need for regular meetings where lgbti-related themes can be discussed. Admission is free, registration required. (language: English)

Time: 13:00-14:00 hrs. See also Facebook.
Admission is free, registered required.
