“We have to realise that every human being in this world is born onto the earth equal. It’s only all of the crazy stories we tell each other that take some of that away. But what if we changed the story? What if we all turned up, in all of our magnificence, what would the world look like then?”
Bol.com, de winkel van ons allemaal (the store of us all). This is the story we work on every day. It is our belief that this story will grow even stronger when many different people add their uniqueness to our story. People with their own voice. People with a different view on the world. People who see opportunities in everything that is fresh, new and different. And those who know – just like us – that when you bring different people together, the most beautiful things will arise. This is how we will be able to truly be “De winkel van ons allemaal.” To all those different people: we want to hear your story.

We need to stop asking the question if diversity is important and embrace the fact that it is. t’s about every person being able to turn up and show up as themselves.

Everyone is unique in their being, their background and in what they contribute. And I think if you allow enough space for all of that and embrace it together then you’ll achieve the best result. And then the difference between men and women won’t even need to be an issue.

For a little while I thought, maybe this is indeed a mans world and I don’t belong. I had to go through this process of deconstructing this image that I put in my head of how an engineer should look like. We have to put in the effort of making this community a diverse place, a secure place for everyone to be themselves
