MUMBAI : The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will sponsor a number of women from developing countries to follow a new maritime leadership programme, curated by Maritime SheEO , as part of the it’s ongoing work to support gender diversity in the maritime sector.
In Maritime, as with other sectors, the higher you climb the fewer women leaders you see in leadership positions. You cannot be what you cannot see! We need more women leaders, more role models and more importantly – our industry needs more capable women in the Captain’s seat.
Braving through the choppy waters of pandemic induced lockdown, that was thrown its way within a short period of its inception in 2019 – Maritime SheEO has managed to put together a leadership accelerator program exclusively for women in the maritime industry.
Ms. Sanjam Sahi Gupta, Founder, Maritime SheEO, says “with a strong belief that every woman in the workplace should have the opportunity to flourish and achieve her full potential in 2019 I embarked on this mission through Maritime SheEO to create an ecosystem that supports women to become the leaders they want to be and they deserve to be”. She further adds, “I am really very grateful to IMO for showing their confidence in Maritime SheEO through their support for this unique Maritime women’s empowerment initiative”.

This initiative forms an important part of the wider outreach strategy of IMO’s Women in Maritime Program that aims to provide women with access to short skill-enhancement courses similar to those offered for women in port management and operations.
