IMO's Women in Maritime programme will support women to take part in the SheEO leadership scheme.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will sponsor a number of women from developing countries to follow a new maritime leadership programme, as part of the Organization's ongoing work to support gender diversity in the maritime sector.
The initiative was announced during the first Maritime SheEO conference http://www.maritimegateway.com/maritime-sheeo-conference/ https://myonvent.com/event/maritime-she-eo, which brought together maritime experts in a virtual space on 23 November, to debate the theme "Diversity and Sustainability: The Business Case". Maritime SheEO works towards creating the next generation of female maritime leaders.
The Maritime SheEO leadership accelerator programme aims to equip women with the leadership skills and confidence to take a seat at the shipping decision-making table.
