Women at the Top: Merel van Vroonhoven

Recording: Women at the Top: Merel van Vroonhoven

According to statistics from the Dutch Female Board index, 48% of stock market listed companies have one or more women on their board. Women at the top are gaining ground. Has the glass ceiling finally been shattered? Or are we still facing an uphill struggle? As Sheryl Sandberg, an American businesswoman and chief operating officer of Facebook, suggests in her book: “Stop complaining, just put in more effort”. An interesting statement that should make for a lively debate.

Women at the Top

Every second Tuesday of the month during the lunch break, a successful Dutch Woman at the Top will discuss with students everything you’ve always wanted to know about her work, career and private life. To kick off the series we have invited Merel van Vroonhoven, who is on the Board of Directors at Dutch Railways (NS) and was voted Business Woman of the Year 2012.
