Diversity & Inclusion
Everyone should feel welcome and at home at DAF. Being open to and working with people who are different from you challenges your brain to think in a new, creative way. In fact, diversity is very simple: it means avoiding unconscious prejudices, not assuming that different is bad and paying attention to any idea that can contribute to the success of DAF.
So many people, so many differences
You can also see that at DAF. People with different backgrounds work towards a common goal. Diversity is good for creativity and therefore for innovation within the organization. Machteld Geurts, Program Director and chairman of the Diversity Council, also agrees. And according to her, diversity goes even further than that.
