Workplace Pride is pleased to announce the start of a monthly social gathering and networking event in the city of Groningen. The Groningen drink (Borrel), which will take place every 3rd Thursday of the month, joins similar events in Amsterdam and the Hague, taking place on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month respectively.
“This event is significant for Workplace Pride and for Groningen as it the first such event outside of the Randstad. The borrel highlights that LGBT people in the workplace see lots of potential and value in networking with each other wherever they are, and no matter what their background “ said Maria van Driel, organizer of the Groningen Borrel and Member of the Workplace Pride Foundation Board.
The premier Groningen social event will be held on 20 March at ‘de Kast’ , Oosterstraat 7A, 9711 Groningen, starting at 17:30. Everyone is welcome and the first 50 participants will receive a free welcoming drink. Light snacks will be served throughout the event. Registration is not necessary, but participants are requested to sign up to our Facebook page to help us prepare catering for the event.
Workplace Pride is arranging this event with the cooperation and help of individuals from the University of Groningen, LGBT Groningen and from many Workplace Pride members in the region.
