Awareness about the gender equality to be provided by IMO

An opportunity to improve awareness of the importance of gender equality was provided by the IMO at this year’s World Maritime Day with the “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community” theme.

Theme would also highlight the important, yet under-utilized, contribution of women within the maritime sector.

“Empowering women fuels thriving economies across the world, spurs growth and development, and benefits everyone working in the global maritime community in the drive towards safe, secure, clean and sustainable shipping,” IMO’s Kitack Lim earlier said.

Theme also gives IMO the opportunity to work with various maritime stakeholders to foster an environment in which women are identified and selected for career development opportunities in maritime administrations, ports and maritime training institutes and to encourage more conversation for gender equality in the maritime space.
