WELCOME LAURA FABER AND SANNE TERLOUW, BUREAU DE WERKVLOER, AS INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKERS TO THE SWEDISH CHAMBER WOMEN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP PROGRAM ON JUNE 9, 2022, LIVE.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to welcoming Laura Faber and Sanne Terlouw, Bureau de werkvloer, as inspirational speakers to the Swedish Chamber Women Business Leadership Program on June 9, 2022, live at the Swedish Chamber in Amsterdam.   “It is time to empower the position of women in the workforce“ Did you know that: - 75% of the women work part-time contrary to 25% of the men. - Only 13% of the art in musea is created by women (although almost all the nudes are female). - There are more CEOs called Peter than there are female CEOs in the Netherlands.   Many companies don’t realize how much of an effect having more women present at every level of an organization has in terms of profit, team functionality within the company, or the ease of filling vacancies from a larger pool of potential employees. Bureau de werkvloer is a young agency focused on training and communication within companies. It is the brainchild of its two permanent employees, Laura Faber and Sanne Terlouw. To get enough women at the top, to ensure that women are represented at all levels of the organization, and to close the pay gap, Bureau de werkvloer helps companies to develop a program for a more diverse, functional, and profitable business. We are looking forward to welcoming Laura and Sanne to join the Swedish Chamber Women Business Leadership Program on June 9, 2022.   for more information about the Program for the Swedish Chamber Women Business Leadership Event - Mindful Leadership – Recovery, evaluation, how to keep up the energy and get revitalized on June 9, 2022, by Coach Malin Hedlund.
