The network of women with board of directors training
The most successful source of recruitment for female board members since 2011
“The network of talented, board-ready women that Female Board Pool offers to the business community is essential. There is still work to do to increase the share of female senior executives in Luxembourg. I strongly believe that having more women at top level is good for society and is good for business. Boards that combine male and female approaches make better, more sustainable decisions.
ING has partnered with Female Board Pool and Mrs. Knott for years. We gladly recommend the program and the professional approach towards candidates and companies for their quality.”Colette Dierick,
