Nienke Meijer named Top Woman of 2014
The winner of the 2014 Top Woman of the Year award, Nienke Meijer, chair of the Managing Board of the school organisation Fontys Hogescholen, visits Beursplein 5 and sounds the opening gong. She is accompanied by Sophia Kerkhof Schneider, Senior Board manager at Vrumona (Heineken) and the winner of the 2014 Young Talent Award.
The purpose of the selection process sponsored by the Top Woman Foundation is to highlight the accomplishments of women. The 5-member jury, chaired by Gerdi Verbeet, had the difficult task of choosing this year’s winner. One of the most important criteria for selection is the extent to which the finalists have worked to promote diversity in their own organisation, but also the span of control, the scope of the position held and results achieved are taken into account. Ten women were nominated for the award this year. The other finalists are Sigrid van Aken, member of the Managing Board of Novamedia and Joanne Kellerman, member of the management of the Dutch Central Bank. Partners of the award are among others, ABN AMRO, Heineken and the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
