Strengthening and support, exchange of information, satisfaction and pride. It means, professional shipping women group all over the World. Women who play the important role in the industry, women more and more educated, women more skillful, women who do businesses, who exchange the information, who build professional contact, who promote the members and on top of that who are enthusiastic and open minded.
Education and adventure. Both require courage of character, curiosity and the ability to think analytically and coordinate multiple tasks. The great satisfaction with the difficult task well done is like a drug. Maritime industry is a very large area with various professions but frankly speaking both education and adventure is absolutely necessary in every respect . Maritime schools, all kinds of sports like sailing, competitions and constant promotion the maritime professions and the jobs at sea and around the sea give the opportunity to attract.
I think YES, specially young women. I am convinced that women like a challenge and in shipping industry are plenty opportunities for them.
