The maritime industry needs more women, particularly in leadership roles. The World Maritime University (WMU) and IMO are launching a book to highlight the achievements of women in the maritime sector. IMO`s Pamela Tansey, also a contributor to the book, delivered a keynote address at the launch, which was held at the World Maritime University on 13th March.
The book – Maritime Women: Global Leadership – is a compilation of scientific papers presented at the ‘Maritime Women: Global Leadership’ international conference hosted by WMU last year, in cooperation with IMO.
In conjunction with the book launch, WMU also hosted a forum in collaboration with IMO to discuss the advancement of women in the maritime sector. Sessions entitled “The Maritime World We Want” and “Tools for Implementing Gender Equality in the Maritime Sector,” that covered the topics of policy, career, education, leadership, and sustainability, with distinguished guest speakers who also participate in a panel discussion.
