CFO Virginie Duperat–Vergne discusses gender targets


Arcadis' CFO Virginie Duperat–Vergne shares why all companies should commit to clear, ambitious gender targets and three female Arcadians share their perspective on what needs to change for more women to achieve their goals.

"It's very important that women leaders are doing what we can do pave the way for future generations of women to succeed. I am very aware of this responsibility in both my professional life but also in my personal life, as the mother of two daughters. At work, I strive to be open and accessible to all of my colleagues and I hope that over time, any woman (or man for that matter) working at Arcadis will feel that they can reach out to me for advice or just to talk about their career goals and how they can go about achieving them," says Virginie
