What is WIQD?

WIQD (pronounced “wicked”) stands for Women in Quantum Development. By ‘women’ we refer to both women and other gender minorities, binary and non-binary. It is a professional network in the quantum sector in the Netherlands, including industry, academia and policy. WIQD aims to connect and retain women in the quantum sector in the Netherlands through support, networking, and community growth. To ultimately create an inclusive quantum sector in the Netherlands, where everyone feels that they belong.


In order to achieve our mission, the WIQD Organising Committee organizes multiple events per year. The current organizing committee is looking for three new members and currently consists of seven volunteers working/studying in the field of quantum that meet every month (both online and in person). Every last Thursday of the month a role model working in the field on quantum computing shares her/his/their story during the (online) Inspirational Talks. We believe story telling is a great source for inspiration to learn from each other’s experiences. In addition, WIQD has quarterly events, which are in-person events to meet the WIQD community and learn a new skill. And once a year our flagship event is organized: our annual symposium on which experts and activists come together to talk about quantum, diversity, equity and inclusion.

Do you have a passion for quantum? Or are you interested in diversity, equity and inclusion? Want to join our Organising Committee and dedicate a few hours per month to the organization of WIQD’s events? Send your CV and motivation letter to Judith Kreukels, Project Coordinator of WIQD at by August 18. We look forward to hearing from you and will welcome candidates to interview on Aug 23 and 28.

We welcome people of any gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, ability level, neurotype, religion, elder status, family structure, culture, subculture, political opinion, identity, and self-identification to apply.
