I defended my dissertation, entitled ‘Social inclusion in diverse work settings, in April 2015 at the University of Groningen. 

In my dissertation I investigated how perceptions of social inclusion in diverse work settings can be fostered. To do so, I developed a novel theoretical framework of inclusion and introduced a corresponding measurement instrument. In addition, I revealed how diversity approaches – organizations’ ideological notions about how differences should be dealt with – affect the extent to which majority and minority employees perceive to be included.
