The Oil Search Foundation and PNG Business Coalition for Women (BCFW) signed an agreement yesterday that formalises the participation of Oil Search in a pilot project that responds to safety issues in the workplace affected by, or linked to, gender.
Lady Winifred Kamit addressed employees at Oil Search’s Port Moresby office at a morning tea held to mark International Women’s Day this week. During her talk, Lady Winifred Kamit reflected on her journey as a Papua New Guinean woman and where she sees this path going.
On 25 November 2015, Oil Search staff at Moro and Fofari, sub-contractors, police officers, the CDI team and wider Kutubu community, commemorated International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW) with a walkathon from the Kaimari markets to Moro police station.
At a recent meeting in Port Moresby I was perplexed to hear that many of the first line service providers that help women escaping violence have no first aid training. This group is made up of Human Rights Defenders, Safe Houses, Police and Ward level representatives as well as members of the Family and Sexual Violence Action Committee (FSVAC).
The Oil Search Foundation announced its support to the 51st PNG Annual Medical Symposium by presenting a cheque of K10,000 to the Medical Symposium’s organising committee as part of a bronze sponsorship. By sponsoring the 2015 Medical Symposium with the theme of ‘Advancing Women’s Health Through Innovation’ the Oil Search Foundation captures a great opportunity to support women’s health and empowerment in PNG.
