Meet Diane, INHOPE's Interim head of Operations

Get to know the people behind INHOPE with our team member spotlight.

Diane Kirkland

Interim Head of Operations, joined INHOPE in March 2023.

Why did you move to the Netherlands?

I originally moved with my partner for professional reasons (with an adventurous slant), but we’ve stayed because we love the city and all the opportunities for exploration. Amsterdam is a vibrant city that has pushed us to expand our horizons while making us feel at home.

Why do you work at INHOPE?

I strongly believe in the mission of INHOPE and am inspired by the organisation’s unique position in fighting CSAM. I feel my personal principles align with INHOPE’s and I am excited to be a part of such a dedicated team.

What is a passion of yours?

Soccer or I should say football since we are in the Netherlands! I grew up playing and still enjoy playing for the WV-HEDW women’s first team in Oost!

What do you do outside of office hours?

You can often find me reading in a park or walking my dog, Louis. My partner and I also cook a lot and enjoy cycling around the city trying new restaurants and cafes in Amsterdam!
