We would like to inform you that Angélique Verweij is leaving Femconsult as Managing Director due to changed family responsibilities. She regrets to leave the organisation but is proud of the organisation’s results in the past years in strengthening and promoting gender equality and women’s rights. She would like to thank the consultants, the partners and clients, the Femconsult team and Board for the great cooperation. The team and the Board would like to thank Angélique for her contribution to Femconsult’s work and wishes her success in her feature endeavours.
We are proud to announce that Joke Manders and Monique Mekenkamp, whom most of you know already, have been appointed by the Board to take up the leadership of Femconsult, effective from January 1, 2018. Joke Manders has been working for Femconsult for over 12 years as Project Manager and in-house gender expert. Her new position will be Managing Director Gender & Development, whilst also continuing her work as gender expert. Monique Mekenkamp joined Femconsult two years ago as Manager FWC & Business Development and will continue as Managing Director Business Development. In their new positions they will focus on their own complementary expertise and experience, with joint responsibility for the overall management of Femconsult. Joke and Monique have already been working closely together and with the team, which will ensure a smooth transition.
With Joke and Monique in place as Managing Directors, the Femconsult team and Board are looking forward to continue to work with you to deliver a broad range of quality consultancy services and to promote gender equality worldwide.
