Professional Boards Forum
Pre-Event at Amsterdam Institute of Finance
The pre-event for the next Professional Boards Forum, being held on May 29, was hosted by AIF on April 25th.
The focus of this pre-event was centered on 'How to Walk
& Talk the Boardroom' and included a presentation by
Brenda Childers sharing her experiences as Managing Director of
Amsterdam Institute of Finance. Present at the event were a number
of women representing companies such as Heijmans, Schiphol Group,
Akzo Nobel, Oxfam Novib and DSM.
The goal of the Professional Boards Forum is to increase the number of women Non-Executive Directors on Dutch Boards. It was established by Norwegian entrepreneur Elin Hurvenes following the controversial quota legislation for women on boards in Norway in 2002.
