The panel committee was a new committee in 2018, set up to react to the increasing demand for Jong Rabo to share its vision and opinion on various topics within the organisation. Current issues within the organisation are sent to the panel committee so they can organize brainstorm sessions, surveys and research what our members really think and feel! Themes that we'll be seeing more of in 2021 are Future of Work (how do we as young professionals feel about working from home long-term?), The coöperative Rabobank (what is the coöperative Rabobank?) and Safety and Inclusion. With help from the Panel Committee Jong Rabo and it's members can share their opinions on the most important topics and themes at this moment!

Business change committee
The Business change committee organizes, together with the board, discussions with the top management of Rabobank that focus on specific topics that are happening within the bank at this very moment. This allows Jong Rabo to share their opinions on the most important themes within Rabobank at the highest level! And not just a discussion but to challenge the leadership of Rabobank on big topics such as Sustainability, Millenial Issues or current events within Rabobank and the world around us.
