LISW Proud to Sponsor Maritime UK’s Public Speaking Workshops

London International Shipping Week is sponsoring Maritime UK’s two newly-launched initiatives as part of its Women in Maritime Taskforce which are intended to help improve the sector’s gender diversity and pave the way for more women to be represented as speakers at international conferences and seminars.

Traditionally the maritime sector has been a male-dominated industry, but now a ‘Speaker Bank’ will provide a database of female speakers for participation on panels and in conferences and an ‘Interview Pool’ will second maritime women to other companies, enabling greater diversity on interview panels. These resources, the first of their kind in the maritime sector, aim to respond to challenges identified by the Taskforce.

Shipping Innovation, organiser of London International Shipping Week, has come onboard as a sponsor and will promote the speaker bank to Sponsors and Supporting Organisations holding events during LISW19, as well as making full use of both initiatives to help populate the official LISW19 Conference on Thursday, 12 September.

Yesterday, Maritime UK ran the first in a series of public speaking workshops to help support more women to join the speaker bank. The workshops aim to enable women to become ‘dynamic, inspiring, valuable and authentic’ speakers.
