Slightly more Dutch women take top jobs in the Netherlands

There was a slight increase in the number of women in top jobs at 250 Dutch firms which have signed a government charter committing themselves to change, news agency ANP says on Tuesday. Women accounted for 20.9% of board level jobs at the companies by the end of last year, compared with 19.8% in 2013. The Dutch government has an official target of 30% and ministers have threatened to bring in quotas unless firms start promoting more women to top jobs.

‘Is this white enough for you?’ say two Amsterdam primary schools

Two Amsterdam primary schools with predominantly ethnic minority pupils on Friday launch a campaign for more white children to attend, using provocative t-shirts. The schools, one in the Rivierenbuurt and one in the trendy Pijp district, have decided to draw attention to their plight by ‘going white’ for the day. Pupils will wear t-shirts with the slogan ‘is this white enough for you?’ and parents and teachers will also wear white clothing, the Parool reports.

The first group of employees and managers of temporary employment agencies has completed the training 'Discrimination-free selection mechanisms'!

Inclusive Works offers this training, together with Art.1 MN, to managers and employees of in temporary employment agencies.

The training consists of three sessions. The first session strengthens the participant's knowledge of discrimination law and how to apply this in their daily work. In the second session, the (unconscious) selection mechanisms and processes that lead to indirect discrimination are discussed. In the third session realistic solutions are sought and existing solutions (good practices) are presented to transform discriminatory requests into neutral requests.
