BDO is the main partner of the Women’s Bank Walk once again
15 July 2019
BDO continues as the main partner of the Women’s Bank Walk.
This year is the tenth time that the Women’s Bank Walk will take over dozens of cities in Finland and abroad. The event raises funds to promote education and entrepreneurship among women in developing countries. Women’s employment and entrepreneurship has a significant impact on the well-being of families and entire villages.
As the event’s main partner, BDO, a leading provider of auditing and expert services, supports the event by making a donation and by taking part in the walk. BDO will also hand out water bottles to walkers in Helsinki, Turku, Tampere and Oulu.
“We’re very excited to participate in the event again. Our staff have been very happy about the co-operation,” says Eeva Koivula, Regional Manager of Southern Finland.
BDO has supported Women’s Bank on several occasions over the years and is one of its founding partners. “Our company’s motto is ‘People helping people achieve their dreams’.” That’s also an excellent description of the Women's Bank and our co-operation,” states Koivula.
The Women’s Bank Walk 2019 will take place on Sunday, 15 September. Come walk with us for a good cause!
