Kramer Ausenco Brothers Rugby Football Union Club launched their 2016 season in Port Moresby today.
The Club announced that its men’s Premier side will wear pink socks and pink-tinged jerseys for their season opener this Saturday in recognition of International Women’s Day (March 8).
Kramer Ausenco Chief Executive Officer, Frank Kramer, said: “The Club and Company support International Women’s Day’s Pledge for Parity, and the pink strips are our way of acknowledging the achievements of women and committing to helping their advance on and off the field.”
“It’s also a show of gratitude from the Kramer Ausenco Brothers to the women in their lives, such as the Kramer Ausenco Sisters-our women’s team, and the mothers, wives and daughters who support the Club.”
Kramer Ausenco is the largest engineering and project management company in PNG and the South Pacific and their association with the Brothers Rugby Football Union Club started in 2011.
“We’re proud sponsors of a Club that shares our Company’s culture of teamwork, respect, integrity, recognition, diversity, agility, innovation, growth and leadership.”
“Kramer Ausenco Brothers is a Club that focuses on its members both on and off the field, developing good rugby players and upstanding citizens.”
“Sport plays an important role in societies. We’re very pleased that the Kramer Ausenco Brothers understand that, and we’re excited about what they’ll achieve, again both on and off the field, this year,” Mr. Kramer said.
