A Must-Read Article by Crewtoo: Let’s Get More Women in Maritime
According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), there is ample evidence that investing in women can have a hugely positive effect. Indeed, it is the most effective way to lift communities, companies, and even countries.
Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better, while peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support.
Yes indeed, the evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all. Which brings us neatly to the issue of women in maritime. If companies do better, if communities are lifted, then it follows that more women in our industry could have a massive and positive impact.
