The focus of the executive dialogue session in March is to unify the experience and thinking ability of some of Netherlands’ top female leaders in a small-scale and personal setting. Learning from peers with similar dilemmas and challenges, by asking the right questions and exchanging experiences.


Year round we exclusively invite our alumnae to join various events to learn, share knowledge and network, in order to stay connected with their own group and to meet the other alumnae women to learn from each other. Our next alumnae event will be planned for May 2024.


Later this year, the Women on Boards English edition kicks off, a program for top female professionals with the ambition to take a seat on an executive board or supervisory board, and for women who have recently been appointed members of an executive board or supervisory board. The English edition is especially developed for international women seeking to take the next step towards a boardroom position in the Netherlands.
