Yvonne Benschop Chair LNVH

The Dutch Network of Women Professors (LNVH) proudly announces as of today, April 1, 2024, prof. dr. Yvonne Benschop will take on the role of Chair of LNVH. Yvonne Benschop is Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Institute for Management Research at Radboud University. She was Head of the Department of Business Administration from 2017-2022 and is director of the interdisciplinary research hotspot Gender and Power in Politics and Management. She has been a member of the LNVH board since December 1, 2023.

LNVH extends its gratitude to prof. dr. Moniek Tromp, professor of Materials Chemistry at the University of Groningen, scientific director of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, and LNVH board member since April 2019, for her highly committed and action-oriented board membership and (interim) chairwomanship. Under her board membership, a lot of milestones were reached. We look forward to continuing our work with Yvonne Benschop in the period ahead.

In light of this development, LNVH had a conversation with Yvonne and Moniek regarding various topics, including the role of LNVH chairwoman, broad diversity and intersectionality, the position of the LNVH within that context, quotas, and their wishes for the future. You can read the joint interview (in Dutch) with Moniek and Yvonne here.
