The Equals community has opened its newest location in The Hague

At the beginning of September, the Amsterdam-based Equals team opened its second clubhouse in the Netherlands. It chose the wonderful Titaan building as its newest location in The Hague. As Titaan was opening its doors for the first time that day as well, the event became a Grand Opening of both. Equals supports women in the growth and development of their careers, by offering them a space to work and learn together. Titaan is a vibrant space that promises to be a hub of creativity, innovation and collaboration. The combined Grand Opening featured various exciting activities and networking opportunities as well as a chance to explore this dynamic new space with like-minded women in The Hague.
