Women’s Board Award 2022

For the fourth time in a row, the Women’s Board Award will be presented in Zurich.

The three nominees are:

Sandra Emme
Barbara Lambert
Nadja Lang

The award recognizes deserving female board members who have the potential to become chair of the board. Candidates must have served for at least five years as members of the board of directors of a renowned company and made a major contribution to the value of the organization during that time.

At KPMG we believe that gender equality brings added value to our company, employees, clients and society. This is why we are again partner of the Woman’s Board Award 2022.

The award ceremony will take place on 07 November at the Lakeside in Zurich.

Winner of last year’s award was Dr Barbara Frei.
