PAC Group are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Ophir Women's Rugby Team with the presentation of the team's new kit.

The decision to sponsor the team was twofold - PAC Group are dedicated to giving back to the local community through a range of sponsorship and volunteering activities as part of their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, but this sponsorship was significant for the company for another reason - as an engineering company operating in a male dominated sector, PAC were keen to support a female team within a male dominated sport.
The lack of female representation in STEM careers and within sports like rugby are issues that need to be tackled, and PAC Group want to step-up and contribute.
Rachel Doherty, PAC Group Marketing & Business Development Manager, said:
"We are delighted to sponsor the Ophir Women's Rugby Team. Forward-thinking businesses and organisations will continue to challenge unconscious bias and gender norms in pursuit of an equal playing field. Likewise, strong female representation and role models in male dominated sport, like Rugby, cannot be underestimated in the pursuit of equality in the women's game."
