A warm welcome from Annemeike, RAHM Leadership Council Chair.

I am delighted to be joining RAHM as co-chair and aim to make a difference in people and companies ‘lives’ by being involved. LGBTQIA+ members as well as Allies making up the council ensures that a balanced view is presented in the development of engaging programmes and content. The council members are eminent members representing diverse backgrounds and careers in a truly global setting allowing a broad focus on how we can deliver on our goals. Together, as a council, we are further building the leadership community that offers inclusion and diversity and in turn the ability to make a difference.

We are pleased to present the RAHM LEADERSHIP COUNCIL 2022
