At Kienbaum The Netherlands we recognize not only the social importance of diversity & inclusivity, but also its economic significance. In our view, diverse perspectives ultimately lead to better decisions, innovation and governance. We are committed to diversity in our long and short lists, as well as within our own organization. We closely work together with various platforms and other resources, like the ‘top female’ initiative, where we meet hundreds of women annually, thereby having access to the national top female database.
Kienbaum was also asked by the German government to evaluate the ingrowth quota and target value for more diversity in the top ranks of businesses and to advise on how to accelerate this process. In the Netherlands, the social and economic council (SER) is currently consulting on the topic to translate the lessons learned into Dutch legislation and programs.
Furthermore, Kienbaum organizes cross border seminars to exchange best practices between directors and supervisory board members from Germany and the Netherlands.
