Meanwhile, the volunteer team of the project will visit the women employees at the stations and celebrate the Women's Day. “Women are successful in every aspect of the business life. We succeeded in this in an industry like fuel distribution where the services are provided mainly by men. According to the research done, it is seen that especially efficiency and profitability increase in the companies where women assume active roles. We observe that women are also very successful in jobs such as fuel sales representative, station manager, which has been perceived as male jobs so far. We believe that our project will create a significant change in society" said Filiz Öztürk, the Board Member of OPET stating that, with the Women's Power Project, they aim to draw attention to the importance of women's employment in Turkey.
