Women in Maritime - IMO and WISTA International Survey 2021
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.
