This first global survey is conducted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Women's International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA International). The purpose  is to obtain baseline data on the number of women in maritime and oceans fields and the positions they occupy. We plan to repeat the survey every three years. Our aim is to support implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by having comparable data that will assist us in creating programmes and proposing policies that will increase the participation of women in maritime. This will help promote a more diverse and inclusive environment in our sector. We will publish a report on the aggregate numbers that will be available to all interested parties.

How will we handle the information you provide?

The data gathered will be handled on a strictly confidential basis and this includes data on the identity of the respondents or their company/organization.
How will we use the information that identifies the respondent or their company/organization? 

We will collect information that identifies you and your company/organization to process your survey submission and ensure duplicated entries are not counted in the report. All data will be anonymised and aggregated to produce a report that meets the objective outlined above. Your personal information will not be included in the report. Your personal identifiable data will be disclosed on a need-to-know basis among the teams responsible for this survey at IMO, WISTA International and the supporting survey team at IHS Markit, and will not be disclosed to any other person or for any other reason than the purpose of this survey.
