Dear female alumni,

We hope you had a great start to 2018! We are very much looking forward to a year filled with alumni activities.

Recently, the Ivy Circle Women’s Networks met with the INSEAD Women’s Network and discussed ideas to start and strengthen our partnership to leverage the mutual strength and positive energy of the networks, both vibrant hubs of diverse female talent in business and society. We discussed some concrete starting points and ideas to facilitate mutual support, relevant connections and inspirations at Moments that Matter to women in the networks.

As part of this initiative, it’s a great pleasure to announce our first collaboration. Ivy Group female Alumni are kindly invited to attend the Women Career panel discussion and drinks kindly hosted by Egon Zehnder (Zuidas Amsterdam) on March 22, 2018. It’s also a great opportunity to meet the inspiring and diverse group of INSEAD female Alumni.

INSEAD alumna Birgit van Kalleveen and alumnus Bart Blommers have kindly offered to be our hosts and sparring partners. The event will kick off with an introduction talk by Egon Zehnder about career planning and personal branding, including a model to look at career potential. This will be followed with an elaborate panel discussion for which we have found three inspiring panelists who will answer all your questions!


  • Janneke Niessen, serial entrepreneur an co-initiator at Inspiring Fifty (a pan-European programme that aims to increase diversity in the tech sector), also board member at Unicef, RVO and FutureNL
  • Francine van Dierendonck, CEO at Xenos and previously Chief Digital at Philips and Marketing Director at eBay
  • Valerie Heeremans-Niedersüss (MBA’10D), Head of Digital Acceleration at Heineken and previously in various roles at Google

We will end the event with celebratory drinks and a further opportunity to exchange experiences in an informal setting.
