Brainport for each other dinner on Nov. 20 with theme of (digital) literacy
The Brainport for each other dinner in brief
During the Brainport for each other dinner (formerly MO040 dinner) we connect companies and civil society organizations to see what they can do for each other. This evening provides both parties with new insights, collaborations and concrete matches. As a company you can, for example, offer your help in attracting new volunteers, give guest lectures or help expand the network. Or offer your expertise (in the field of legal or financial support, a communication issue, advice on HR or fundraising) or a pair of hands.
For social organizations: this evening you will get to know socially involved (region) Eindhoven entrepreneurs who, with their knowledge, expertise and employees, would like to contribute - together with you - to a more beautiful and social Eindhoven through valuable new connections and matches.
At the Brainport for Each Other Dinner, we connect businesses and community organizations to see what you can do for each other.
Many Dutch adults experience problems with reading, writing, math and/or their digital skills. A total of as many as 2.5 million adults, 1.8 million of whom are between the ages of 18 and 65. In the Brainport region we have an estimated 75,000 low-literate people. This includes residents for whom Dutch is the second language as well as residents for whom it is the first language.
Skill in the Dutch language is important, both to function well in society and in your work environment. In Helmond-De Peel, 27% of the low-literate work and in South-East Brabant 23%.
In addition, it appears that financial problems often arise from problems with language, math or digital skills. Low literacy often only becomes visible when problems arise because many people who have these problems are ashamed of them and thus do not tell those around them.
Are you participating (again)?
With the next Brainport for Each Other Dinner in 2024, for the 23rd time, we are making the connection between companies, government, educational institutions and civil society organizations in the Brainport region. We aim to create an inclusive and close network. Based on trust, we engage in an equal dialogue so that social connection is created. The result - we speak from experience - is always a positive and energetic evening (see photos), after which everyone goes home with a good feeling.
Is corporate social responsibility also a high priority at your company? Then sign up for the Brainport for Each Other Dinner in 2024. Sign up with Maaike de Jonge of Samen voor Eindhoven on 06-55695527.
Hope to see you at the Brainport for Each Other Dinner!
