Employees and students can contact me if they are confronted with undesirable behavior (such as aggression, discrimination, violence, (sexual) intimidation, bullying or stalking) and/or issues related to organisational integrity (such as financial fraud, conflicts of interest or abuse of power).

External confidential advisor

Carin van der Hor

My name is Carin van der Hor. I work as an independent, external confidential advisor, mainly for organisations with social objectives. I also work as an interim manager, trainer and coach. I have worked in development cooperation and emergency aid for a long time and have always had a special interest in protection issues, including the topic of social safety.

As an external confidential advisor at TU Delft, I am a point of contact for all (former) employees and (former) students who are (or have been) confronted with undesirable behaviour or who have noticed a potential integrity violation of another kind. Examples of undesirable behaviour include (sexual) harassment, discrimination, bullying and aggression. If you are confronted with such behaviour, I can offer support and think along with you. Filing a complaint can be an option, but other solutions can be considered as well. You can also approach me if you have identified a possible integrity violation in the organisational field – such as a conflict of interest, financial fraud or abuse of power. In that case, you can discuss with me how you might report this. Important to bear in mind: everything we discuss remains confidential. I have a duty of confidentiality.

Send an email to or call/app me at  phone number: 06-40016234. Should you not get me on the line immediately, please leave a voicemail message. I will then call back as soon as possible.
