17 October 2018 18:30 CET - 22:30 CET Hotel Casa

Thank you for your interest in this event! It is now closed for registrations. There is no waiting list since we have surpassed our maximum seating capacity. We look forward to seeing you at either our Social Networking event on October 26th ; November 7th Mentoring Kickoff;   or on the November 15th event, entitled Closing the Digital Distance - Empower Yourself to Work Together Everywhere



As women, we face unique financial challenges. Learn to protect yourself from planned and unplanned risk and attain your financial goals in the upcoming PWN event “Financial Empowerment for Women.” 

Reaching your financial goals is not only about paying your bills on time, it’s also about maximising your earnings and investing wisely, while minimising risk and costs. Learn to control your financial destiny by, for example, gaining a deeper understanding of the tax and legal implications of investment vehicles and pensions.

In “Financial Empowerment for Women”, PWN has brought together a panel of experts from four diverse financial fields to offer advice tailored to the unique needs of women. Learn how to make the smartest and most tax efficient investments, how to best protect yourself financially in relationships, how to manage wealth through the generations in your family, and more. Ask our experts the financial questions that keep you awake at night! The panel will be moderated by Joanna Polak-Goodman, VP Women & Money. 

Our panel members are: 

Family Legal Expert - Carla L. M. Smeets - Partner at SmeetsGijbels

Investments Specialist - Liduina Hammer - Fund Manager UNIIQ

Pensions Expert - Sebastiaan v.d. Dries - Director board bureau ING & NN CDC pension funds

Tax Specialist - Mirjam Wesselink - Tax Lawyer at KPMG Meijburg & Co
