The impact of Covid19 on Women in Maritime

Study on the Impact of Covid19 on Women in Maritime, a collaboration between #WISTAInternational and Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Ufes).

Despina Panayiotou Theodossiou, President of Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association, believes growing awareness for women in the maritime industry will help ease pressures and allow discussions for change. “The global pandemic has increased the pressures both financially and mentally for women and men who have to balance their work commitments with family life.

Working from home is not always an easy task and it will have an impact on the maritime world as pressures increase. But the role of women in any household, especially with children or elderly family members, means they are, in many ways, under greater stresses during any home working obligations.

There is huge potential to redefine the roles of women in the maritime industry. This is an ideal opportunity to re-examine roles, create new career opportunities and give women the support they need.”

WISTA Members can contact their NWAs to receive the link to the survey.
