Toy’s that advocate for diversity: Take a peak at Co Gear’s diversity inspired Toy Catalogue for Christmas 2020

These are simply some gift ideas that have been created with extra thought for our next generation, encouraging confidence in their own skin, education around disabilities, and supporting the truth that they can grow up to be whoever they dream to be.

Chats with a self-love Queen: Body positivity, mental health and fifo life

Currently there is a large focus on self-love and body positivity in our society and in the online realm, you could even say it’s become somewhat of a movement.

Women in Aviation – The Australian Chapter: Diversifying the Aviation industry, one woman at a time

Co Gear collaborated with the team at WAI - The Australian Chapter, to create an inclusive workwear package which included 2 pairs of cargo work pants or a maternity kit for a pregnant applicant. For those who haven’t heard us speak their praises, WAI are a volunteer community that empower and support women with career goals in the Aviation industry. To announce the scholarship winners, a Zoom presentation was held in true 2020 style, an event Kym was honored to take part in.

Pregnant women speak out: We want maternity work pants that fit!

24 weeks pregnant and this time around I'm grateful to be working mostly from home. My first pregnancy was totally different - I was working the 9-5 job and dreaded choosing what to wear daily. Everything was either too tight, uncomfortable or just didn't look right. It was easy enough to find maternity singlets, tights and casual (not so stylish) t-shirts, but maternity work pants? A rare occurrence! You could even see that some brands just slapped a piece of extra material onto their garments and called it maternity – a poor excuse for what should be a functional and supportive wardrobe essential for pregnant women.

Relocating for work: the pros and cons you need to consider

I moved to Townsville by myself, relocating from Toowomba to work for BHP. In hindsight it was the best thing I’ve done and I wouldn’t change it for anything. It helped me become more social when it came to work and the new friends I made, became family. Some great advantages was that it was easy to save money living remotely and I became a part of the small communities I lived in

The Many Roles Of A Woman: Women's Work Pants Create Resilience

With the resilience of the average (extraordinary) woman in mind, we’ve created a pair of pants suited to meet most, if not all of these roles. The magic formula? A little bit of style, a pinch of sustainable material, a shake of unique technology and a bucket load of conscious thinking, leaving us with a pair of adaptable and multifaceted cargo pants that ooze longevity. If you haven’t already guessed, we named her Sandy.

Conquering Mental Health Issues For Fly In Fly Out Workers

Mental health can often be viewed as a “taboo” subject, creating barriers and fear around opening communication channels to have those (sometimes tough) conversations. This is something Co Gear is passionate about breaking down in the workplace and community, along with external factors such as discrimination and workplace bullying.
Co Gear supports National Op Shop week

Why We Support Shopping Second-hand

Okay, so it’s not just the love for bargain shopping that makes the Co Gear team a big fan of op shops – it’s about how it reduces the impact on our environment as well. Opting to purchase second-hand saves additional pollutants such as dyes and bleach being released into the environment, as opposed to when new garments are made.

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In our own advocacy for women’s rights, workplace inclusion and the end of gender discrimination, we will continue to learn from Ruth’s trail blazing leadership and courage. She’s a true reminder of our “why” here at Co Gear and someone we will never forget.
