Empowering women in the maritime industry


To address the gender gap in the maritime, ports, fishing and related industries, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) announced that the theme of World Maritime Day 2019 will be “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community”. Since it was established in 1983 under the auspices of the IMO, the World Maritime University (WMU) has been committed to the advancement of women.

In 2019, WMU will host its Third International Women’s Conference from 4-5 April on the theme “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community”.
