Published on: 21 July 2022

Annette Mosman has made it to the final of the election for Top Woman of the Year 2022. The chairman of the board of APG is one of the three finalists, who were chosen from ten nominated top women.


The purpose of the election is to draw attention to female board members of Dutch organizations, so that they can fulfill a role model function. "I would love to be able to inspire by giving substance to sustainable, value-driven and inclusive leadership," says Annette in the video in which she presents herself to the jury. "If I were to become top woman of the year, it would give me a responsibility and also the opportunity to have more stages to get my message across.”


The other two finalists are Carina Hilders (Managing Director of the Reinier de Graaf Gasthuis in Delft) and Nadine Klokke (CEO of the online bank Knab). The three finalists were chosen by a five-member jury led by Member of Parliament Khadija Arib.


In mid-September, the finalists will present themselves personally to the jury. The election primarily looks at the degree of courage, ambition and leadership style of the top women. On 29 September, the jury will announce the winner. This will happen during a dinner in Theater Amsterdam.

Minister of Social Affairs and Employment Karien van Gennip will be the keynote speaker that evening.


This year is the eighteenth time that the election is held. Previous winners include Mariëlle Bartholomeus (Member of the Executive Board of RIVAS Zorggroep and Top Woman of the Year 2020) and Janine Vos (Member Managing Board and CHRO Rabobank and Top Woman of the Year 2021). They are also part of the jury this year.
