I’m going to take up a small space on the Forum to quickly introduce myself, and let you know that I am the new ‘go to’ person for community responsibilities at Fairphone.
I briefly and virtually got to meet some of you, and I’m very much looking forward to getting to know everyone and continuing to built our community together.
I am taking over this role from Douwe, which as you know is becoming the new data protection officer at Fairphone. However, we will not fully say ‘goodbye’ to him, as his ideas and hopes for our community will still continue with us, and he will still drop by from time to time. So ‘see you soon!’ @Douwe.
As for my story, before joining Fairphone, I worked at Pakhuis de Zwijger (a Dutch cultural organisation acting as an independent sharing knowledge platform for city-making) where I was responsible for managing the international community of city-makers. So, quite similar to my new role at Fairphone, I worked with an European based community on inspiring and activating members with regards to societal issues in their cities.
I am really excited about getting to work with all of you, and hope that over time I get to meet you in person as well. Do not hesitate to contact me with questions, requests, or epiphanies.
Have a lovely day,
