Equality Initiatives in Ocean & Energy Sectors

As the ocean & energy industries step up the efforts for sustainable businesses for the future, women plays an instrumental role. Let´s take a look at some of the key diversity, equality & inclusion initiatives out there! Join the ones relevant for you - or gain inspiration to get started with your own.

Industry Organisations & Initiatives driving equality:

  • WISTA International - an international networking organization whose mission is to attract and support women, at the management level, in the maritime, trading and logistics sectors

  • IMO - The International Maritime Organisation: Women in Maritime (Gender programme). The IMO Assembly has adopted a resolution proclaiming an International Day for Women in Maritime, to be observed on 18 May every year

  • WISTA Norway - #40by30 Pledge: WISTA Norway launched the ‘40 by 30’ Pledge March 2022, which will serve as a symbol of you and your company’s commitment to promote diversity in the maritime industry. Striving towards increasing the share of women in leading positions in your company to 40% by 2030 is a powerful measure and one that requires collaboration from all maritime stakeholders.

  • YoungShip International, with founding statutes driving diversity & inclusion. The only industry organisation with majority of female founders and board members world wide. Local branch founders/co-founders driving diversity include Dr. Sinem Ogis (Turkey), Ansam Okbani (France)

  • Global Maritime Forum - All Aboard Alliance. New alliance to pave the way for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive maritime industry

Established Industry Actors pioneering new DEI initiatives: 

  • Maersk: In 2018, ITC SheTrades and Maersk launched a partnership to help female entrepreneurs who use logistics and shipping. The SheTrades initiative was established by the International Trade Centre to address the barriers women face to access economic opportunities. SheTrades works to connect millions of women entrepreneurs to markets while promoting their full participation in international trade. The initiative is a proud contributor to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • Grieg. The SheWorthy program in Grieg Star is a women-only programme designed to give them the chance to share knowledge and experiences - and propose changes to the company.

  • Hafnia, Anglo American, RightShip, Rio Tinto, Thome Group & Wilh. Wilhelmsen. Maritime Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Innovation Lab 2022. The innovation lab is an open competition for interested participants (individuals, institutions, companies, students etc.) to submit their ideas on addressing DEI in the maritime industry
