Job title
Lecturer-researcher Sustainable Finance & Accounting

After working for almost 20 years as a social worker within the GGZ, Diede made the transition to education as a Social Work teacher in 2021. Pretty soon after that, she came into contact with the DFA lectureship, through Trajectory Impact where there is cooperation with welfare organization ContourdeTwern. Meanwhile, Dieke has been working with colleagues from the professorship for a year and a half, to make invisible values visible and contribute to a sustainable society.


Dieke’s expertise lies in social sustainability and how companies and organizations can contribute to important themes such as equality, poverty reduction and well-being. Diversity, inclusion and destigmatization are her focal points.


In 2002, Dieke completed the SPH training in Nijmegen, after which she worked at the OGH Foundation, Buro Maks and De Viersprong, among others. At the latter organization, she worked as an MBT sociotherapist. In 2019, Dieke obtained the Master’s degree in Social Work.

Dieke on a sustainable future:

Diversity and inclusion are only possible if we are able to recognize and adjust our own biases.
