Become a strong woman in the (business) world thanks to the online community NOW- supporting goal diggers!

Are you a VUB student who identifies as a woman or have you just graduated from VUB? Are you uncertain about your future as a woman in the workplace, or do you experience problems in the workplace because of your gender? Do you need a conversation or would you like to belong to a group where these problems can be discussed? Then NOW-Supporting goal diggers is the ideal community for you! 

Today there are still too many women who feel insecure in society. For example, not every woman knows where to turn when she experiences gender problems in the workplace, the wage gap is still a reality and it is still difficult to have a voice in the men's world. The VUB strives for gender equality on every level and that is why the online LinkedIn group NOW- Supporting goal diggers was created.  

NOW stands for Network of Women. The Linkedin group consists of dynamic, inspiring and motivating women who come together to encourage and stimulate each other. You will learn about being a woman in society and share ideas with each other that will help create positive effects on each other's lives. It is also a safe environment where everyone is treated with respect and where members can speak freely about their passions, ambitions and doubts. In addition, you can count on support tools such as online workshops, tutorials and webinars. These focus on topics such as gender equality, the wage gap and implications for women's career choices. In order to have the greatest possible impact, NOW aims to create the largest possible online community. Your membership can therefore make a difference! Moreover, you make an important contribution to the lives of other women. So you not only advance your own career, but also take your contribution to society into your own hands! So don't hesitate and join the Linkedin group NOW- Supporting Goal Diggers!
