It is with great please that Workplace Pride, Leiden University and KPN announce that Dr. Jojanneke van der Toon has been named Professor for the Workplace Pride Chair at Leiden Univerity.
This Chair, which has been under development for a number of years, is the first of its kind in the world. The Chair will provide a focused and scientific approach to improving LGBT inclusion in the workplace and will foster the development of scholarship in this priority research field both domestically and internationally. It will create a theoretical framework on which to base future studies of international LGBT workplace studies, and identify factors that influence LGBT inclusiveness in society and its dynamics.
“By connecting with our members and other organizations on a regular basis, Dr. van der Toorn will help them look at the ‘bigger picture’ of LGBT workplace inclusion and thus enhance its practical applications. We are very pleased to have her onboard!, says David Pollard, Executive Director of Workplace Pride Foundation. ”
