I started my career at the National Bank of Belgium as an IT developer in 2011.
In 2016 I was elected in the Health and Safety Committee. During this first mandate, supported by the whole union team, I learned to defend and negotiate to ensure physical and psychological safety for the Bank’s workers.
In 2020 I became vice-president of the SETCa-BBTK at the NBB in addition to obtaining a mandate on the Works Council.
2017 was my first contact with SCECBU during the Executive Committee in Jurmala. During this committee I offered my help to participate in the organization of the YUS seminar and to join the Communication working group.
I also joined the Diversity working group in 2020. Working with my European colleagues in these working groups, I realized how much we all have the same goal to defend workers.
The European Central Bank is increasingly influencing our central banks in our daily work. This influence has unfortunately the effect of making us believe that we are all identical and formattable.
However, my participation in the SCECBU working groups made me realize that even if we defend a common goal, we think and act according to our cultural traditions.
This has been for me an inspiring and enriching source of exchange between us in order to find innovative proposals and I will be committed to defend a vision of shared corporate cultures in the coming years.
