World Maritime Day 2019 – Empowering Women in the Maritime Community
This year’s theme from International Maritime Organization for the 2019 World Maritime Day is Empowering Women in the Maritime community.
IMO is dedicated to raising awareness of gender equality for women in the heavily male-dominated maritime sector. Along with United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals, this is an opportunity to help cultivate an environment that encourages conversation about gender equality to promote more opportunities for women to advance in the various career fields within the maritime sector. Women have made and will continue to make substantial contributions in all industries and this is to support the promotion of safe, secure, clean and sustainable shipping and maritime industry.
