In return the young high potential women will be introduced to corporate governance and executive management.
Sonja Rottiers leaves the Chair to Françoise Roels, François Blondel joins the board after 2 year as chairman of Women on Boards admissions Committee and Cécile Coune has elected to resign from the board, as she focuses on the growing needs of European Women on Boards (our European “umbrella” organization). She will remain an active member of WoB which she co-founded. The Board is very thankful for her years’ commitment.

On 15 June 2015, PwC will be hosting our general assembly followed by a great event on a very hot-topic: "tax strategy and ethics, a major item for Board agenda"
"Looking back at the year that I have been a member of WoB I have witnessed a number of outstanding initiatives:
- a series of very valuable events, the one tonight being a very good example of an extremely relevant topic;
- the broadening of the network to an international level in times where every company benefits from an international Board;
- a tremendous move towards transparency of opportunities with a whole range of open Board mandates being published through your network;
- a true effort in promoting women on Boards, the most visible example being the exposure a lot of your women got in “De Morgen".
I am amazed by the quality of the debate, the relevance of the initiatives and the impact of all you do and I think you and the team can be proud of what has been achieved!"
