Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is International Women’s Day – a day to recognise the tremendous contribution that RM Surveys’ 11-strong female professionals bring to our company. Dane Blower, RM Surveys Director of Operations, said,

In a typically ‘male-dominated’ industry such as surveying, RM Surveys’ amazing band of female employees has not only shown that women can do this job, but they can excel and thrive in the spatial profession!

Eleven female employees out of 75 equate to roughly 15% of our company. Of course, it’s a number we can build on, but RM Surveys would not be half the company without them! So today, we reflect on our female colleagues’ excellent contributions to our company.

Engaging in all facets of our business, from the field to the office, we appreciate the hard work our colleagues contribute:

  • Jenny De Wind – Office Manager
  • Cara Duncan – Bid Coordinator
  • Stacey Fick – Admin Coordinator
  • Fenella Greenwood – Admin Assistant
  • Hanne Rae – Admin Assistant
  • Jordan Tweed – Surveyor
  • Tshering Lham – Geospatial Draftsperson
  • Daniela Rodrigues – Surveyor
  • Faye Watson – Admin Assistant
  • Gwyn Shewan – Senior Surveyor
  • Lynley Munro – Admin Assistant

Also deserving of acknowledgement are our skilled consultants who positively influence our daily operations:

  • Laura Bernhardt – Marketing
  • Linda Morgan – Geodesy & Spatial

The IWD 2023 campaign theme is “Embrace Equity”.

It is critical to understand the difference between equity and equality. This is because we all start from different places, and our life journeys take us on different paths. Therefore everyone’s workplace and career needs are different.

RM Surveys recognise why equal opportunities are not enough. To achieve true diversity, inclusion and belonging, we must continually be aware of and strive for gender equity in our workplace.
