Partnership BDO & Plan International

The Memorial Van Damme is an annual athletics competition held at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels. Every year during this event the Equal Rights Run takes place. A symbolic 100m sprint organised by Plan International Belgium and run by a number of Ambassadors to create awareness and attention to gender equality among children.

We at BDO Belgium are once again a proud Equal Rights Ambassador this year. By taking part, we are creating, together with Plan International, a world in which all children have equal opportunities. Because like them we think that sport is a way to put the debate on gender norms and equality more on the table.

Inclusive diversity is high on the agenda at BDO Belgium. We want to create a workplace where everyone feels welcome, valued, respected and heard. As a sponsor of the Equal Rights Run, we recognise the global issue of equality for women and, through the participation of a BDO colleague, we want to help raise awareness and support this challenge. - Tessy Martens, Sustainability Services Lead
