On this International Women's Day, we want to highlight the contributions of our female team members and reaffirm our commitment to embracing equity in all aspects of our work, as well as reflecting on the importance of this day and what it means for our values as a company.
First and foremost, International Women's Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is a day to recognize the invaluable contributions that women make to our workplace, and society as a whole.
Diversity, equality, and inclusivity are the three pillars of our corporate beliefs. At EVA Global, we believe that our success is in large part due to the contributions of our diverse team, including the women who play a vital role in driving our business forward and who bring a wealth of skills, experience, and perspectives to the table. Currently, we have a team of 380, 48% of whom identify as female.
“The transportation sector has been traditionally male dominated in the past and I think women are under-represented as leaders in all industries. But as we move away from this, we see that women bring different knowledge and ideas and through that diversity, we can find better solutions,” says Niina Suuriniemi Hopper, Founder & CEO of EVA Global
One of our core values is excellence, and we recognize that excellence knows no gender. We are committed to promoting a workplace culture that encourages and supports all our employees to achieve their full potential, regardless of gender. We are proud of the many achievements of our female employees and the contributions they have made to our company's success.
“As a relatively new industry, eMobility is being built up from strong diversity. There should be no limits, but when there are, we need to be brave in breaking them down” advises Niina.
At EVA Global, we also believe in creating a work environment that fosters balance and promotes well-being. We understand that work-life balance is a critical issue for many of our employees, and we are committed to providing the resources and support needed to help our team members succeed both personally and professionally. We recognize that women in particular face unique challenges in achieving work-life balance, and we are committed to creating a culture that supports all of our employees in this regard.
“With over 50 nationalities represented at EVA Global, we believe diversity and inclusion are fundamental in driving innovation forward.” Niina concludes.
Finally, International Women's Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of women. By recognizing the contributions of our female employees, we demonstrate our commitment to creating a workplace culture that values and celebrates all of our people. By embracing a range of perspectives and experiences, we are better equipped to tackle new challenges and drive innovation. Women are a critical part of this, and we recognize the importance of cultivating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.
