Merel joined Fairspace in 2023 as Program Officer for the Workplace Safety program. In this capacity, she coordinates and develops workplace safety trainings for clients. Originally a sociologist, Merels interests in inclusive and equal spaces prompted her to work for Fairspace. In her free time, Merel enjoys going to the cinema, bouldering, and having game nights with friends. She is based in Amsterdam.
Fairspace’ s vision is for a society in which everyone in the Netherlands, regardless of sex, race, gender or gender expression, feels safe moving through public spaces. Whether through transforming experiences on our streets, in bars and nightclubs, in schools or in the workplace, we tailor our services to the needs of our partners. Our work focuses on three impact areas: Education, Co-creation and Policy advice.
