Press Release: The current percentage of women in leading positions in the maritime industry in Norway is a mere 15%, compared to other industries such as health (47%) and finance (29%).
The «40 by 30» pledge is a straightforward symbol of commitment whereby companies agree to promote diversity in the maritime industry by striving towards increasing the share of women in leading positions in their organisation to 40% within 2030.
Even though the «40 by 30» campaign does not officially launch until March 8th, we already have a long list with signatories including The Norwegian Shipowners Association, Norled, The Norwegian Maritime Authority, Grieg Star, Norwegian Hull Club, Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Skipsrederi.
On March 8th WISTA is hosting informal after work get togethers in locations all over Norway to mark the launch and gather friends and partners in the Maritime industry together, and WISTA Norway will be raising these issues during their own «Waves of Change» sesssion, at The Quality Flag Forum, to be held at Nor Shipping on April 5th.
