BoKlok on #EmbraceEquity
Each year, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8th, and during the same week, the construction industry recognises Women in Construction. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is ‘embrace equity’. Equity is an important concept for a future-proofed workplace. But what can we each do to embrace equity in the workplace?

How BoKlok is working to #InvestInThePlanet
Today is Earth Day where the world highlights what is being done to address climate issues. Construction currently accounts for about 40% of the world's total CO2 emissions. To reverse this trend, BoKlok believes that the construction industry needs to transition to a more sustainable approach with new innovative construction methods, and materials with low carbon and environmental footprint.

Role models enhance equality in the construction industry
The construction industry is sometimes referred to as being a male-oriented industry. BoKlok Finland is a good example of the opposite where about half of the employees are women. One of them is Country Manager Kati Valtonen. She gives her view of the importance of female role models and encourages more women to apply for jobs in the industry.
Women in a valuable industry
Tove Borchgrevink, Country Manager at BoKlok Norway has worked with commercial development and strategy throughout her career. Now she hopes that she can be a role model and open the door for other women who are looking to build a career in the real estate industry.
