KPN starts quota system for women directors again

Thursday 21 June 2018 | 14:17 CET | News
KPN will once again introduce a quota system for women in senior positions. The company stopped with a similar policy six years ago.

That should be at least a third, according to the recently appointed CEO Maximo Ibarra, speaking in the new internal KPN publication 'De Max'. The quota will be at 30 percent.
