IMO Marks First International Day for Women in Maritime

“There is still a gender imbalance in maritime – but times are changing. It is recognized that diversity in maritime benefits the entire sector,” said IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim as the International Maritime Organization today celebrated the first International Day for Women in Maritime.

“Women in maritime are working everywhere to support the transition to a decarbonized, digitalized and more sustainable future,” said Lim. “Let’s take this opportunity to celebrate the many women who are contributing to the future of maritime: maintaining an engine on a ship, running a company, drawing up a contract, surveying a vessel, or chairing an IMO committee meeting.”
