Intercultureel talent in de corporate wereld – Werving & Selectie 12 september 2018

De Nederlandse economie bloeit en groeit. De crisis is voorbij, en bedrijven zien hun orderportefeuilles zich vullen. De BV Nederland draait op volle toeren. Organisaties hebben moeite om aan personeel te komen en economen spreken van een van ARBEIDSKRAPTE: sinds lange tijd zijn er meer vacatures dan werkzoekenden. Tegelijkertijd ondervindt een belangrijke groep Nederlanders problemen met het vinden van een (eerste) baan. Vooral jongeren met een migratieachtergrond komen maar moeilijk aan de bak. Ze lijken de AANSLUITING MET DE ARBEIDSMARKT te missen. Wat is hier aan de hand en hoe valt dit te verklaren? Lees meer…

Sietar España Congress 28th – 29th September 2018

Intercultural Competence: A Key for Inclusive Organizations and Societies
The 1st SIETAR España Congress (28/09/2018 – 29/09/2018) will be an intersectoral conference, where professionals from different realms of society (business, academic, public administrations, NGOs…) will discuss the topic of inclusion. This Congress aims to become a platform to exchange innovative ideas and to debate different aspects of interculturality. We will also have a close look at how this interculturality permeates different fields, such as education, research, and civil and business organizations. After this Congress, one thing will become clear: the intercultural competence will stand out as one of the most decisive tools when ensuring inclusive organizations and societies in our modern world.
Inclusion is everyone’s responsibility!

25th June: Webinar Ethics, Culture and You

Sietar Netherlands has recently introduced a Code of Ethics. It has not always been easy. Their journey to finally realize a Living Code of Ethics, combined with a compliance procedure and a compliance committee, has taken three years.
Join us for this special webinar 2PM, 25th June 2018 to meet the three Sietar members that were deeply involved from the beginning. They will be happy to share their breakthroughs and methods with other Sietarians and interculturalists interested in building up professionalism and process within their own national Sietars and organisations. 

Jacqueline Franssens represents the board of Sietar Netherlands and Teuni Looij and Yvonne van der Pol  will represent the working group that arrived at the Code of Ethics. They will tell of their highs and lows on the journey to successfully making a robust Code of Ethics. 
In the webinar they will answer key questions; Why a Code of Ethics? How did they organize the work? And, How did the process evolve? On what topics did they receive support? And, Where did they encounter most resistance? Finally, Why did they move from working on a Code of Conduct and end up deciding for a Code of Ethics? 

Join us for this important broadcast and do please take the opportunity to ask your questions and discover for yourself what is needed to reach a meaningful outcome.

New board Sietar Europa

Dear SIETAR-ians!
I am delighted to welcome our new executive officers team to the board.

President: Joyce Jenkins, also serving as the President of SIETAR UK
Vice-president: Hanneke Brakenhoff, Board representative from SIETAR Netherlands
Treasurer: Linda Vignac, also serving as the President SIETAR France
Secretary – presently vacant

I am very confident in this wonderful executive team having worked with each of them through the years. I am also very confident in the many capabilities of our talented Board Members (link to SEU Board page). SEU is in good hands! Sometimes it feels like contributing to the Board is tedious and time consuming. But it is also our contribution to help shape a field and organisation we are passionate about. I have always felt it a worthy contribution.

Dr. Pari Namazie
