Vries, de, Sjiera

Dr. Sjiera de Vries is professor of Social Innovation and Diversity at Windesheim University of Applied Science in Zwolle, the Netherlands. Her research focusses on how organisations can use diversity as an instrument for innovation and excellence. For this, extra attention is needed in order to recruit and retain employees with different backgrounds, e.g. in gender, age, education or ethnicity. She is currently setting up a research project on why so many women with a technical education are not working in the technical sector. Why do they leave and what can employers and educators do to prevent this loss of talent. This project is designed in cooperation with VHTO and Tech Your Future and will start spring 2015.
