Diversity and inclusion are rising issues in academia, finally!

Since many different factors influence how diverse and inclusive your workplace is, it can be hard to decide what to do about it and how and where to even start. We help you get started by stimulating a pragmatic approach that allows to turn insight into action and to take concrete first steps to make your own workplace more diverse and inclusive.

Knowing that diversity & inclusion are important and need to be stimulated is not enough to make your organization more diverse and inclusive. We help you take the first steps.

Every workshop is accompanied by an online platform. These platforms help you prepare for the workshop and make sure we can tailor the workshop to your personal needs and wishes. Every participant leaves the workshop with their own, personalized implementation plan, to ensure you really take the leap from insight to action.
And while you implement the knowledge and skills you learned during the live workshop, you can still receive personal feedback and help online.

What our clients say about us:

Susanne knows how develop leaders and is thoroughly enjoyable to work with too!

“I found Susanne’s methods and content refreshing in that they were grounded in sound frameworks, useful and sensitive to gender dynamics without pandering to false gender dichotomies.  Susanne’s knowledge and expertise shines through along with her jovial manner and clever facilitation of participant learning. She inspired, she informed and provided a stimulating space for our participants to explore and nurture their leadership self. She is creative as well as practical, fueling our participants ambitions while equipping them with the mindset and tools to deliver on those ambitions.

Her genuine joyous energy is inspiring, without compromising the high level quality of the session

I have been working with Susanne and Maris et al for many years now, and she has never failed to deliver the promised results. The entire process runs smoothly, from brainstorming on topics, to designing, scheduling and aftercare. Overall, I consider her an extremely valuable and highly appreciated business partner and friend. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone.

She understands the challenges and opportunities researchers (all levels) are dealing with.

Susanne’s expertise in working in academia is extensive. This allows her to tweak and adjust her workshops to fit the needs of the participants. Also, she is keen on exploring and working with other forms of education such as online platforms, extending the learning experience of a workshop.

On one hand, her friendly and approachable personality puts people at ease. On the other, her professionalism and extensive knowledge evokes trust.

Susanne has been a wonderful trainer to work with. The programme designed and provided by Susanne in collaboration with another coach perfectly met the needs of the course participants. It consisted of a variety of activities, from presentations and talks, to individual and group exercises. At the end of each training day, the progress and outcomes have been assessed and the agenda amended to meet specific requirements of the participants.

True passion for working with people, ability to connect and understand the concerns of individuals from different backgrounds and ages were aspects that make Susanne an exceptional and versatile trainer.Therefore, I’d highly recommend Susanne and will use her services in the future.

Working with Maris at al. highly increased the quality of the pitches, they triggered full attention in the Brussels’ Parliament.

Maris et al. offered a programme which combined off-line and or online pitch training for our researchers, that was just what we needed. Researchers received quick and personal feedback to all their questions. Susanne personal involvement as a trainer made it such a positive experience.
