This week, WISTA International signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the IMO, off the back of the resolution that commits IMO members to creating a barrier-free environment for women in maritime.

WISTA International covers female workers in all sector of the maritime industry, from seafarers to lawyers, through to workers in national administration and more.

The MOU commits IMO members to provide women seafarers with training opportunities, graduate-level education scholarships, more management-level jobs and more jobs at sea.
