Few women hit corporate top

There were still just six women holding top jobs at 113 Dutch stock exchange-listed companies last year, according to the latest Female Board Index, quoted by the Financieele Dagblad.

The number of women on supervisory boards increased by four to 41, or 7.7% of the total, the FD said. The research was carried out at Erasmus University.
There was one or more women on the supervisory board at 31 companies. Best performer was supermarket group Ahold which has four women under its 11-strong management and supervisory boards. Philips and the stock exchange company Euronext were worst, with no women on their 15-strong boards.
Nancy McKinstry of Wolters Kluwer is the only bourse-listed company chairwoman, the FD said.
