International Women’s Day 2023
Today, Wednesday 8th March, is International Women’s Day and the 2023 theme is around #EmbraceEquity.
“The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action”.
Acknowledging equality & equity is very important to GB Card & Partners. Within all STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) based industries the likelihood of men outnumbering women is high, statistically only 28% of the workforce is made up by women. At GB Card & Partners we’re proud to say our workforce is 50/50 which is a rarity but we appreciate there is still work to do within the wider geo-engineering field to ensure equality & equity for all.

Welcome to Francesco
GB Card & Partners are delighted to welcome another new employee, Francesco, to the company.
Francesco moved to the UK from Italy about 5 years ago after having worked mainly as a geotechnical engineer and expert witness in Italy, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines. His previous role saw Francesco working as an Operations & System Manager initially, then Head of Projects for a ground and structure investigations consultancy company.
After leaving his previous company in 2022 Francesco made one of his dreams come true by exploring Latin American for 3 months by himself where he became fluent in Spanish. Although Francesco is still studying and trying to improve daily.
During Francesco’s free time, besides his love for cooking, (which is a typical Italian characteristic!) Francesco also plays guitar and sings, performing live in bars and restaurants or recording music for professional purposes.
To discuss a project with Francesco please email him at email@example.com.
