Breaking Bias Summit 2023


The Breaking Bias Summit 2023 was Equalture’s first flagship event showcasing all aspects of unbiased hiring and DE&I in recruitment.

In this full-day event, 200+ HR and recruitment professionals gathered in Amsterdam on May 11th 2023 to attend inspiring and practice-oriented sessions by thought leaders and experts in neuroscience, psychology, DE&I, recruitment, and change management in business.

The Breaking Bias Summit aims to empower change-makers and champions of unbiased hiring from forward-thinking companies based in the Europe.

Attendees share their experience

The day was full of interesting talks, discussions and insights on bias, the risks and opportunities of AI in recruiting and how to move from intention to action.

Excellent job Charlotte Melkert, Fleur Melkert and the whole Equalture team!

Jessica Ollus, Impact VC at 4impact capital

It was so wonderful to connect with different thought-leaders in the D,E&I space and come away with actionable changes we can make already, in the everyday.

I am so excited to embed some of the topics shared from the day within our teams and continue making progress in this space!

Glenn Ferguson, People & Culture – Recruitment Manager at Catawiki

It is great to see how organisations are committed to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

During this summit a lot of best practices about diversity, inclusion and bias were shared. I can't wait to put new insights into practice to make Deloitte even more inclusive!

Lonneke Gorter-Machielsen, Recruitment Lead | Senior Corporate Recruiter | Inclusion & Diversity at Deloitte

We have to continuously enlarge our knowledge in how to break biases in hiring decisions (you have a brain, so you're biased - we all are!) and expand our guidance and services.

Thanks to all the great experts we've met and the Equalture team for the amazing event!

Mélanie Bosboom, Co-Founder at Female x Finance


Words from our speakers

An event that was informative, engaging, diverse, and 𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘺 relaxed. I met a ton of new people, without the corporate Tinder-vibe I usually get.

If you weren't there then believe me, you missed out. So make sure to get tickets to next year's event!

Marcia Goddard, Neuroscientist & Chief Culture Officer at The Contentment Foundation

What I found most inspiring was that even though Equalture has their own product (game-based assessments), this event wasn't just about that, it was really about their mission to solve a wider problem.

Mari Järvinen, Organisational Psychologist & Start-Up Coach at Profounder
