Diversity Officer stays on for three more years

Anne de Graaf will continue as UvA’s Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) for another three years. De Graaf began her work in November 2017 as a consequence of the presentation of the Diversity Committee’s final report in 2016. De Graaf will also continue to teach at Amsterdam University College in the fields of human rights and peacebuilding.

Anne de Graaf is the UvA’s first Chief Diversity Officer, which was a new position and plays a complex role. De Graaf: ‘We’ve come a long way in three years and I am deeply grateful to the CDO Team and Faculty Diversity Officers, as well as countless others throughout the UvA community, who have helped make this progress possible. Conversations and policy shifts that were unthinkable three years ago, are accepted and pursued now. In the next three years, we will cooperate even more with Amsterdam partners, and prioritize for students and staff the issues of Support and Sustainability as we sharpen our focus on Discrimination and Decolonization.’
