Looking for talent
In order to make the best possible use of the available talent, the Universiteit Leiden focuses on developing a diverse workforce. In March 2009, the University signed the 'Talent to the Top' Charter. The Charter aims to promote a greater influx, transfer and retention of talented individuals in top functions, particularly female employees. By signing this charter, Leiden University commits to clearly measurable goals regarding the number of women at the top of the organisation. In addition, almost 30% of our academic staff have a non-Dutch nationality and our University aims to make optimal use of the talents of those with a work disability and ethnic and other minorities.
