Martina Meinders-Michael’s* statement on IMO’s International Day for Women in Maritime

by admin

I am very proud that a positive trend has been recorded in the gender balance of women serving as seafarers in the last couple of years, together with a progressive integration of young women in all sectors of shipping.  Today the Maritime industry offers excellent career opportunities for women who have defeated the significant barriers to enter the non-traditional industry.

I wish to take the opportunity to congratulate all inspiring women, who support the change in the demographics of the maritime industry and as well thank the IMO for establishing the “International Day for Women in Maritime” to enhance the awareness towards equality.
