Maritime SheEO offers a bouquet of services focusing on the business case for diversity. It aims to create solutions that can impact the entire maritime industry - with a focus on diversity & inclusion (D&I), leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship and competitive advantage.
It employs D&I initiatives to address and eliminate unconscious bias, uses gender sensitisation techniques throughout the program and enables the smooth transition of women from ship to shore positions.
One of its main focus is the leadership accelerator program for women in the maritime and logistics sectors. Further it works with employers to create an environment conducive for women to rise to leadership positions.
