Annual index shows slightly more women in Dutch boardrooms
Saturday 08 September 2012
The number of women in Dutch company boardrooms is increasing slowly with women now accounting for 10.4% of top jobs, according to the annual Female Board Index published by Nyenrode University.
In 2011, 9.1% of management and supervisory board members were female.
However, the increase this year is entirely due to supervisory board appointments, the index compilers say. Women accounted for 14 out of 60 supervisory appointments so far this year. Eight of them came from outside the Netherlands.
Express delivery firm TNT is the only one to meet the target of 30% women in the most senior corporate positions.
