Breakfast at Tiffany’s

So on Tuesday I launched the Board of Believers in Female leadership during a breakfast meeting at George Marina in Amsterdam.

The Board of Believers is a network of business leaders who take action to make the top of the business world more diverse and future proof by empowering women, giving them more opportunities and supporting them in making themselves visible in order to realize their ambitions.

Did you know that “The Netherlands scores 25% compared to 32% in Western Europe when it comes to female representation in management positions” according to a McKinsey report in September 2018. How crap is that? We are 50% of the population and have no leadership positions. LADIES, 1950 called and it wants its mindset back ;-)!

Because the fact is that women rate higher than men in leadership effectiveness. More women in management leads to new management styles, new innovative solutions and also more business results. It also inspires female employees to excel in their daily work because they see what is possible for them within the next five years. In short, companies benefit by giving women a place at the top.

BrandedU has taken it upon itself to be part of the solution to the challenge of more female leadership by facilitating the business world with inspiring events, useful tools and a proven personal branding training. Do you believe in having more female leaders in The Netherlands?
If so have a look at this video!

We believe in female leaders.
