Rixt Herklots

Managing Director

Working as a recruitment consultant, Rixt Herklots ran into gender prejudices and biases on a regular basis. Refocusing her career, she became an advocate for women in business through her engagement with The Next Women. Connecting female entrepreneurs with investors, she built the company into a noteworthy contender in the women empowerment space of the Netherlands and beyond. Rixt brought her skills and expertise to Una Collective to expand her level of impact by working directly with ambitious leaders and employers.

Where we stand


Let’s clear the air. When a business talks about diversity, it can feel forced. At Una Collective, we try to keep it simple. Diversity and inclusion are more than buzzwords, and bigger than the bottom line. It's strategically smart and it makes your company future-proof.

It’s about our people 
knowing that they’re 

valued where 
they work.

 "If you hire only those people you understand, the company will never get people better than you are. Always remember that you often find outstanding people among those you don't particularly like." - Soichiro Honda, founder of Honda
