On Wednesday, January 19th, the Gemeente Amsterdam hosted the Workplace Pride New Year reception in the beautiful Vondelkerk. Alderman Simone Kukenheim welcomed members and friends on behalf of the Gemeente after which David Pollard, Workplace Pride Executive Director, looked to the year ahead. 


Brandon O’Dell, Joep Lange Institute, joined David on stage to ask attention for the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018), the largest conference on any global health issue in the world, which will be hosted in Amsterdam from 23-27 July 2018. Jelle Martens and Asli Kutlucan of newest member Cycas Hospitality expressed their excitement to join the Workplace Pride family fold and were welcomed with a warm applause.


As in previous years, the New Year’s reception proved to be more than just a networking opportunity, but rather a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones. The Gemeente Amsterdam did a fantastic job in help making this yet another memorable event.
Workplace Pride would like to thank all Members and Friends for their ongoing support, wishing all a very happy 2018!
