Technicians with a passion

The International Women’s Day encourages us all to reflect upon the importance of inclusiveness and diversity – every day. While many teams are becoming more diverse, there are still roles where women are clearly underrepresented, for example as technicians. Let’s hear from four female technicians at Volvo Trucks as they share what they like best about their jobs.
