Australia’s mission is to celebrate the achievements of women in maritime and drive awareness of the issues facing them in the hope of achieving gender equality in a historically male dominated industry.

Why gender equality is so important

Studies have proven that investing in women is the most effective way to advance communities, companies, and even countries.

Gender equality creates balance, better job satisfaction and increases workplace productivity. Equality for women means progress and benefits for everyone.

On Thursday 18 March 2021, we held a webinar to explore the opportunities and challenges experienced by Australian women throughout their careers in the maritime sector. 

Based on the experiences of a number of Australian women in the maritime sector, we discussed advancements in addressing gender equality, as well as opportunities for the sector into the future.
