A chat with Trude Halvorsen, managing director of Arribatec Americas
We embrace diversity in many different ways. Equality is something that is very close to our hearts, and we work hard to break the bias
This year’s International Women’s Day focus and the theme is “Break the bias”. There are different missions during the year, but one that resonates with us is “to raise and promote equality in technology and celebrate the women who create innovation”.
We have taken the opportunity to do a round of questions and answers with some women who work in our company. This round, it is time for Trude Halvorsen, CEO of Arribatec Americas, based in North America.
