Workplace Pride is pleased to announce that Saxion University of Applied Sciences, one of the largest institutions of higher education in the Netherlands, with close to 27,000 students (and still growing!) has joined the Foundation.

Being able to be yourself at your work is important for everyone; no matter where they work or what that do. This equally applies to educational institutions; both for students and for faculties. Saxion is striving to become an organisation where diversity, talent and the ability of its employees and students are optimised, both now and in the future. They will be the first University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands to join Workplace Pride, which they see an important step in this direction. It also marks the beginning of greater awareness and dialogue about diversity at Saxion. 

Saxion University has a rich history – its roots can be traced back to the 1875. A merger of two educational institutions, the Hogeschool Enschede and Hogeschool IJselland, in 1998 paved the way for Saxion University in its present form. This merger enabled Saxion to build further on its strong position in Dutch higher education and since then Saxion University has come to be recognised as an important centre of expertise at regional, national and international level.

Please join us all in welcoming Saxion to the Workplace Pride family!
