About Roze Werkt (formerly Gay UWV Pride):
UWV works for and with people, providing service without distinction of race, creed, gender or sexual orientation. We are a reflection of society, in fact we are that society.
We expect our employees and managers to be aware of the differences between people and to have an open mind for them. We want our LGBT employees as well as our customers to feel safe with us, respected and valued for who and what they are. UWV encourages this along with the pink network Roze Werkt. In short, UWV and its pink network stand for respect and tolerance and fight oppression, harassment and intolerance towards all LGBT employees and customers of UWV.
