Workplace Pride foundation is pleased to announce that Boris Dittrich, Advocacy Director of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Transsexual Rights Program for Human Rights Watch in New York City, has joined the Workplace Pride Advisory Board.
Holder of a Knighthood in the Dutch Order of Orange Nassau, Dittrich has been one of the most productive Dutch parliamentarians since the founding in 1838. He is the only member ever to have drafted four different private bills that have successfully become law and is know as a champion for issues that have made Holland ‘leading’ when it comes to legislation development around the world, including gay rights.
Dittrich was one of the first openly gay members of parliament, and has been a vocal supporting of LGBT rights for decades. His work has been a motivation for many and Workplace Pride is honored to have Dittrich on its Advisory Board. He will be joining Co-Chairs Claudia Woody of IBM and Paul Overdijk of Post NL.
