Rian van Heur
Communications Advisor, VHTO Expertise Centre on Gender Diversity in STEM
Rian van Heur has been passionate about increasing the number of women in STEM and tech sectors for many years. She worked as a journalist for 15 years and mainly wrote about IT and careers. In her last role as Content Director of the IT trade magazine AG Connect, she made an issue featuring only female IT experts. That is when she realized she not only wanted to report on the low number of women in the industry but wanted also to work towards changing this situation. That is why in 2021 she started working for VHTO Expertise Centre on Gender Diversity in STEM. Rian works there in the role of communication advisor.
