Arcadis' Jacoline van Blokland advocates for LGBTQ+ community

 June 23, 2021

For Pride Month, Arcadis shines a light on colleagues from its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) community - celebrating their stories and taking the time to understand how each of them contribute to and stand up for equality.

Reflecting on experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community

"I will personally take time to listen to the experiences of our LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month and identify areas where we need to continue driving change in our behaviors and ways of working," says Arcadis Chief People Officer Jacoline van Blokland who seeks to ensure that a truly inclusive culture prevails at Arcadis.  

"The first step is listening. Only then can I understand what I need to do to show up as an ally, and drive change as a leader."
