The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) join forces for new video in celebration of this year’s theme for World Maritime Day ‘Empowering Women in the Maritime Community’, which is scheduled to be screened on Thursday September 26 at the IMO headquarters in London.
Celebrity Cruises published a video to promote gender equality and inform about its actions to achieve this goal. At the company, more than 22% of the bridge team are women, with this number increasing to 30% to its newest ship, Celebrity Edge.
The IMO published a new film, showing how IMO’s Women in Maritime programme is helping to support gender diversity in the maritime sector. As the video says, women are proving that, in today’s world, the maritime industries are for everyone. ‘It’s not about your gender, it’s about what you can do.’
The video above, published by APM Terminals is focused on women in the shipping industry, as part of the terminal’s efforts to construct an inclusive workplace in the terminal. The video presents several of the terminal’s female crane operators.
On the occasion of the Day of the Seafarer celebrated each year on 25th June, the IMO is calling on everyone in the maritime world and beyond to get onboard with this year’s theme of gender equality and declare their support.
Businesses with genuine gender diversity, particularly at senior level, perform better and see significant profit increases, according to a new ILO report. The report says that gender diversity effects beneficially when women hold 30% of leadership positions, although almost 60% of enterprises do not meet this target.
In this video, female EMSA colleagues share their experiences in the context of the IMO’s ‘Empowering women in the maritime community’ theme for 2019. As Manuela Tomassini, Lawyer, said: ‘Excellence is not linked to gender, but opportunities need to be equal’. Speaking about their experiences on board, several EMSA female colleagues call women to follow their dreams and say that with the right tools they can achieve anything.
Captain Serena Melani will helm the newest cruise ship of the Miami-based cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the ‘Seven Seas Splendor’, becoming the first woman in cruise industry history to captain a new ocean cruise ship at launch, the company announced.
In early December, Celebrity Cruises held a naming ceremony for its newest ship ‘Celebrity Edge’. Celebrity Edge is the company’s first new ship in six years and first new ship series in more than a decade. The ship is known for promoting women in multiple roles onboard, as well as for the way the company’s CEO, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, is working to boost women leadership in shipping industry.
A group of major British businesses and trade bodies gathered on 6 July in Southampton, to ink a new charter aimed at tackling gender diversity in the maritime sector. The parties signed the ‘Women in Maritime pledge’, a statement of intent to improve fairness, equality and inclusion in the sector.
