Testimonials

“I pay lot of attention to diversity when recruiting for . Fact is, very limited number of applications!”

Monique Goyens (@moniquegoyens on #BrusselsSoWhite)

Discrimination is hard when you look different. Since Charlie Hebdo, pressure is higher on the workplace, in public transport… My last two assignments happened via friends in the Muslim community. I appreciate working with people from different backgrounds. Diversity adds value.

We have young people, good people, bright kids, university graduates, fluent in five languages who say “Belgium / Europe = No future for us”.
