EllyElly Stigter

My name is Elly Stigter and I have been with IofC The Netherlands since May2018. I currently hold the position of project coordinator and administrative assistant.

After obtaining a degree in Business Administration, I pursued a career as a project manager, working at the dynamic intersection between IT and process optimization. My former employers include large multinationals such as ABN AMRO and KPN.

In 2010, I decided to pursue an education in interior design. After completing the program and gaining some practical experience, I established my own interior design agency. To me, working as an interior designer and learning the ropes of entrepreneurship was an amazing experience. However, I did desire a more social and dynamic work environment. I found this at IofC. 

My current activities and topics of interest include:

  • Finance and fundraising
  • Organising storytelling and/or theme-related activities
  • Raising awareness about climate change, sustainability, food waste and plant-based diets
  • Equal rights for women 
  • Personal development and social entrepreneurship

On a more personal note: I am the mother of two young adults, Jelle and Amber. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling, hiking, and engaging in good conversation.

You are warmly invited to visit me at our IofC centre in The Hague when you are in town. I hope to see you soon!
