The organisation acknowledges that by considering a broader range of perspectives and broadening its network, it will be able to achieve greater impact. Dutch Design Foundation is resolute in cultivating this inclusive culture based on respect, transparency and integrity. The Code of Conduct was composed to achieve and uphold this culture and serves as a guideline for constructive, equitable and inclusive behaviour and communication.

We make sure we back up our words with actions, holding ourselves and each other accountable and adopting an active stance regarding the expansion of our knowledge and awareness to best serve our community.
