WISTA Hellas conducted its Annual Forum on November 5, focusing on the sanctions that are being imposed today, the development of digitalization, as well as the role of women in shipping and the importance of boosting their presence in the sector.
In our special column this time, we are pleased to host an interview with Dana Jongens, Business Development Manager Maritime at Inmarsat, who says that although shipping is not the most progressive sector, there’s still room for improvement. Ms Jongens shares hes inspiration to change the industry’s reputation and make it more appealing.
Encouraging more women into seafaring careers will help UK improve its skills base, especially amid general technological progress in the industry, said the UK’s shipping minister, John Hayes CBE MP, noting he is “determined that we can and must do more” to get women into careers at sea.
