WISTA Hellas seminar shines spotlight on challenges faced by women at sea.

The first WISTA Hellas ‘Women at Sea’ seminar, staged at Posidonia 2022, offered a thorough examination of the challenges facing women seafarers as well as food for thought on how to support them throughout their careers.
The panel discussion that was attended by senior shipping executives in a full room at Posidonia 2022 outlined that progress towards gender equality is real but outdated attitudes continue to obstruct fair treatment for women working at sea. Although UN 2030 agenda item #5 – the goal of gender equality – offered a resounding call to action for a sold-out WISTA Hellas ‘Women at Sea’ seminar*, it transpired that the distance that needs to be covered until this goal is achieved is indeed long.
