An inspiring keynote and stellar panelists come together to discuss why we still see the maritime sector employing approximately only 34% of women, 2% of which in Director roles and when it comes to seafarers only 2% of the more then 1.5 million seafarers globally and share an actionable target list on what needs to be done going forward.
