Introducing the Maritime Network of Women (M-NOW) and it’s exciting mission to promote the professional advancement of women

A new organisation has been launched to vigorously promote the professional advancement of women in the field of shipping and associated enterprises and services.  The Maritime Network of Women, or M-NOW for short, is based in Copenhagen, one of the great global hubs of the industry.

The M-NOW constitution declares: “The association’s purpose is to form a professional network of women in shipping and other maritime-related fields. The association aims at strengthening women in their careers and professional development and provide overall support for women advancing in their career.”

Its board of directors will organise dynamic events to inspire, connect, and promote women through activities such as educational seminars, lectures, company visits, networking activities, and mentorship programmes.

The founding members of M-NOW are:

  • Irene Rosberg – Programme Director, Executive MBA in Shipping & Logistics (The Blue MBA), Copenhagen Business School
  • Connie S Gehrt – Consultant and Owner, CONOVAH Health and Safety Solutions 
  • Lora Jakobsen – Chief Purpose Activist, ZeroNorth
