The mamas are moving it

Following the Norwegian government’s increased focus on the integration of immigrant women, the national television channel TV2 Norge visited our Oslo office to talk to People Manager Elise Langerød about QVARTZ’ collaboration with Moving Mamas. This social contractor connects immigrant women with businesses to increase their job opportunities and help them become financially independent.

Rajdeep Kaur Grewal, who is one of the Moving Mamas, has been living in Norway for the past 20 years, but has found it very difficult to find employment. Now, she is running the QVARTZ canteen together with another Moving Mama, Ruun Abdi, serving a combination of Norwegian and Indian specialties.

“Before, I was at home and unemployed, but now I have a permanent job at QVARTZ through Moving Mamas. I am proud to be able to provide for my family and contribute to Norwegian society – and I think that the employees at QVARTZ really like my Indian food”.
