Assessing gender aspects in shipping

A survey conducted in 2016 by the Maritime HR Association indicates that the share of women in global onshore maritime employment strongly depends on the level of hierarchy. The share is largest in administrative positions (74 per cent of the provided data) and balanced in junior positions (55 per cent). The share decreases with regard to senior positions: Women occupy 37 per cent of professional-level positions and 17 per cent of manager-level positions. At the director level, 12  per cent of positions are filled by women, compared with 9 per cent at the executive level.
