Yesterday was a special day for one of our Advisory Board members, number one commissioner of the Netherlands, Petri Hofste.
Petri was appointed Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau. She has been dedicating herself as a volunteer for a diverse and inclusive society and financial sector for many years. A role model for many!
The event took place at Nyenrode Business Universiteit and was hosted by supply chain partners Talent naar de Top & Top Woman of the Year Foundation, SER Topvrouwen, WOMEN Inc. and Equileap.
Minister Franc Weerwind and Petri spoke about 'Diversity & Inclusion in Corporate Governance. The participants then engaged in a discussion on what we can do to accelerate DEI in business, government and supply chain partners. Some great, concrete ideas resulted from this.
The WIFS board sincerely congratulates Petri on this special distinction and milestone and is grateful for her ongoing and inspiring contribution to WIFS.
