Women all over the world are underrepresented in management positions. The Netherlands are not doing well compared to other European countries. In the Dutch academic society only some 12% of the full professors are women. This percentage is even lower in executive and governing positions. Change is needed in organisations and in men in general, for instance in scouting and selection procedures.
But women need to change too! They need to invest in their visibility, and in their skills in networking and leadership. In cooperation with women’s networks, ElroyCOM has developed training for academic women who want to make it to the top.
