This picture was taken last Thursday at our first Board of Believers in Female Leadership event in 2021. BoB as I call it, is a group of people I bring together to actively contribute to making companies more diverse and inclusive. Because we know that women are underrepresented in leadership across the board in this country.
And this is the pain point: Companies are struggling to find the women who have the confidence to be leaders.
BrandedU is the institute that teaches women to have the confidence to see themselves as leaders.
In 2 days time we’re giving you a little bit of a taste of what will be happening at AmplifyHER, the Women’s Visibility Conference, by organizing the FREE masterclass Amplify Your Finances together with Judith Sanders of ABN AMRO.
You will learn why women need more money.
Why women in fact are great investors but most women don’t believe it.
And you’ll get a step by step guide on how you should start investing your money TODAY.
It’s my mission to get more equality at the top and I really believe that we need to help women to accelerate their careers. You’re already good and smart enough, I know that! I mean… why do we have more female graduates than male here in The Netherlands? The problem isn’t the quality of your work or the experience you’ve got, it’s about who sees and hears about it. It’s about the person who gives out promotions knowing the value you bring.
Visibility matters. Invisibility costs women their career advancement. Speaking up about your achievements at work is a selfless act – and is the key to closing the gender gap.
So I’m going to keep on giving you tools to accelerate your career.

“Money talks, mmm, mmm, money talks
Dirty cash I want you, dirty cash I need you, ooh “
I keep hearing the lyrics to this ’90ies song when I think about the fact that I am organizing a FREE finance masterclass!
Why am I focusing on women & money?
Women in The Netherlands continue to face many challenges in becoming financially secure. Women are paid less than their male counterparts and 63% of Dutch women are still not financially independent.
Ladies, this all has a HUGE impact on our financial well-being in the long-term. And I know I become more confident when I have access to the right information. So that’s why I’ve invited Judith Sanders (Investment Strategist at ABN AMRO) to tell us what we need to know about our personal finance on the 29th of September at 15.30.
Join us if you are ready to make some money moves. In the mean time click on this video below to hear Noraly’s financial tips!
And if you’re still not convinced here are already 3 reasons why every woman should increase her financial knowledge.
1. To meet the rising cost of living.
I mean… I just bought a new phone and it cost me €1000, really we didn’t have these kinds of costs in the 90ies.
2. To gain confidence and independence.
I remember being in my teens living in the South East of Amsterdam and having friends whose parents owned houses. This really was the first thing big investment I made in my twenties. Still gives me a sense of independence.
3. To be prepared for emergencies.
I love the fact that I own gold jewelry which is something you can easily sell for instance. My uncle once told me when I was 14 that gold was always a sound investment.
So ladies, don’t wait till it’s too late get your financial knowledge now!
P.S. there will be more financial tips and tricks shared at AmplifyHER in November. Did you get your tickets already?
Did you watch the Olympic Games? OMG it was so inspiring! So many women broke records, and The Netherlands had more women winning medals than men. Out of the 36 medals we won, 21 were won by women.
They all deserve our RESPECT! Siffan Hassan just blew me away when she fell, got up and still won the race. Talk about determination, resilience and self belief. Simon Biles had us thinking about the importance of mental health. Rayssa Leal, showed us that age ain’t nothing but a number when she won a medal for Brazil at only 13, she’s been skating for 5 years already. Here she is in her pretty pink dress. Raven Saunders stood up for the LGBTQ+ community and Allyson Felix won 11 medals, set the record for most all-time medals by an Olympic track and field athlete, stood up to Nike and redefined what’s possible for women in sports. She became a mother and Nike told her they would pay her less because of that, she left signed a deal with Atletha and has now started a 200000 dollars fund to cover child care costs for other Olympic mom athletes.
Doesn’t this just feel empowering?
My week has just been full of stories of inspiring women like this and not just in Sports. There was one story I thought I already knew but that really surprised me. That’s the story of Aretha Franklin. I was fortunate to be invited to a screening of the film RESPECT. I won’t say too much about the film yet, you can check out the trailer here. But I am organizing a special breakfast screening for women on the 28th of August in Amsterdam at 10.00 am. If you want to join us just email firstname.lastname@example.org before the 16th of August. All we need to know is which woman has inspired you so far in 2021 and why. We will share her story in my next blog.
I truly hope we can all inspire each other to do more than we ever thought we could.
