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?

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.
