Today TU Delft and TenneT TSO B.V. welcomed Robbert Dijkgraaf (the current Minister of Education, Culture and Science | Ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap) to the ESP Lab. The ESP Lab is the place where the Dutch electricity grid is being prepared for the future. This morning we spoke with the minister about promoting and encouraging gender diversity.

 TU Delft strives to be a safe, diverse and inclusive learning and working environment for all staff and students. Rector Magnificus Tim van der Hagen: “Inclusion is a topic that really matters. It is important that people feel at home here and can develop to their maximum potential. By listening to each other, we are demonstrating mutual respect.”

 Later this year, the findings of this morning will be shared at a G20 Empower meeting. The G20 Alliance for the Empowerment and Progression of Women’s Economic Representation (G20 EMPOWER) is accelerating women’s leadership and empowerment.
