International Women’s Day 2022

Techrete Celebrate International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on 8 March in order to recognise the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women across the world and to highlight issues which still need addressing. IWD advocates for an inclusive, gender equal world whereby difference is celebrated and the theme for 2022 is #BreakTheBias.

Techrete celebrated the women of Techrete by holding a focus group to recognize their valued contribution to the business, as well as exploring how to support them further and encourage more women to enter the construction industry.

Managing Director Mark O’Dea said ‘We are committed to creating an environment in which each employee can feel safe to be themselves, to fulfil their potential and maximise their contribution, regardless of their gender, age, religion, ethnic or national origin. Today, we join our female colleagues in celebrating the occasion and reflect on the significance of the message that it communicates

Wear it Pink

‘Wear it Pink’ Day for Breast Cancer Awareness

As part of our Wellness calendar, our team in Brigg organised a bake sale to raise funds for ‘Wear it Pink’ day in late October, while the famous pink ribbons were sold by our Balbriggan team. A total of €300 was raised, with Techrete matching that figure for a sizeable donation to this worthy cause.

With one in nine women developing breast cancer during the course of their lifetime, it is vital that we continue to raise awareness and support women who are affected by the disease.
