We are celebrating International Women’s day on Sunday 8th March 2020.
Women make up and estimated 2% of the world’s maritime workforce, so it’s fair to say that there is room for improvement.
Some companies have already increased the number of women in their workforce including Celebrity Cruises increasing from 3% - 22% in the last four years.
Other companies are looking at removing barriers for women who work with them, including a more flexible approach to working hours – adapting roles closer to home, shorter shifts (especially when they have young children at home). That said, this is also being reviewed for parents in general.
Focus will also be in education and ensuring there is a welcoming approach for introducing women into all roles within the industry; seagoing, shorebased, trades and ship management.
