Guest speakers/panel for this month: 

Tilo van Driel is a Dutch-American 19 year-old who has grown up in the Hague. He’s studying to become a waiter, working part time at Cafe Parkoers in Zuiderpark. Tilo received the diagnosis of autism and cognitive challenges when he was 4 years old while living in Brussels, Belgium. His family moved to the Hague so he could attend the Lighthouse – an English-language school focussing on special education. Tilo is an actor, model and avid YouTuber, creating short films about life with autism from the perspective of someone who has it. His first role in a feature film, “De Witte Wieven”, will be out on NPO in the autumn of 2023.

Karim El Oteify is an intersectional entrepreneur, creator, and consultant passionate about change and transformation. After moving to the Netherlands in 2018 to study media and communications at Erasmus University Rotterdam, he fell in love with the local entrepreneurial culture, which led him to launch two projects to support the growing international community. BGMT, an online platform for young internationals, and Assist NL, a relocation service for young professionals.  Karim’s path transitioned as time passed, and his passion for people and stories drove him to get certified in systemic change management! With that certification, his communications degree, and a masterclass in diversity and inclusion under his belt, he now spends his time helping organizations tell better stories and facilitating change within organizations to create safe spaces where intersectional individuals such as himself may thrive!  You can connect with him on Linkedin and check out his previous work here.
