Bringing in diverse talent, training them and facilitating them into their field of work
The main goal of the Young Talent programme of Diversity Works: Increasing the intake of a greater diversity of students into logistics (HBO) courses. In addition, we want this more diverse group to find work in logistics and thus increase the diversity of the logistics field.
For example, within the logistics colleges we are currently seeing an imbalance in areas such as the gender and nationality of students. This may be because the sector is insufficiently known, but it may also be due to the outdated 'dusty' image that logistics - completely unjustly - still has.
There are great opportunities, because diversely composed teams perform and function better. With research we want to gain insight into what causes this imbalance. These insights are also key for increasing the effectiveness of image campaigns that are planned.
