For the past several years, Workplace Pride has cooperated with the RVO and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs to organise the “Stories from the Heart” gathering. This unique event brings LGBTIQ+ activists from different regions of the world, who are in the Netherlands as part of the RVO’s “Building Bridges” program, together with Workplace Pride members. The activists share their experiences of the ‘on-the-ground’ situation with Workplace Pride members, many of whom have colleagues working in the same countries.
Traditionally, Stories from the Heart is held in the week before the Amsterdam Canal Parade. Planning for the 2023 event is not yet complete, but the gathering will likely be on 2 or 3 August. Save the date!
