International Womens Day 2020

(March 8, 2020)

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on 8th March.

The day is about unity, celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also marking a call to action for accelerating gender equality.

This year’s theme is #EachforEqual. An equal world is an enabled world.

Geobear is a contractor with a global presence and we invented the concept of non – disruptive ground engineering by injecting expanding geopolymer to fix subsidence or settlement.

Geobear is placed within the construction industry and this has long been considered a “mans world”. Our pledge for #EachforEqual is to inspire women to choose a career in construction.

Geobear CEO, Otso Lahtinen,

“At Geobear we support women to develop and make choices without the limitations set by stereotypes and prejudices. Gender equality means for us that the behaviour and aspirations of women and men are considered equally, it means fairness of treatment for women and men according to their respective needs.”

We will always recruit the best person for the role – regardless of their gender.
