The top fifty most inspirational women in the technology sector in the Netherlands were revealed yesterday by Inspiring Fifty. The top fifty comes from across the sector and includes influencers, entrepreneurs, business leaders, academics and policy makers.
We take great pride in the fact that three of these women ( Anouk Vos, Melanie Rieback andPetra van Schayik) are WiCS! Inspiring Fifty co-initiator Janneke Niessen said: “I believe in the power of female role models to bring a positive change to our sector. If she can see it, she can be it.
Following the launch of our European list, we wanted to identify female leaders at a very local level to give girls and young women growing up in the Netherlands inspiration close to home. These incredible fifty women are leading the way in the technology field in the Netherlands and we are excited to celebrate them today.” “Our ultimate goal at Inspiring Fifty is to address the gender imbalance in the sector, to bring positive and lasting change. Diversity matters and the more women we can identify and celebrate, the more other girls and young women will consider building a career path in technology. It’s a fantastic industry and we’re proud to identify such an amazing group of women”, added Inspiring Fifty co-initiator Joelle Frijters.
The following list of the Inspiring Fifty: Netherlands 2016 finalists is arranged alphabetically. It in no way reflects any ranking or scoring by the judges.
