The ECSA–ETF WESS project to create an Attractive, Smart and Sustainable Working Environment in the EU shipping sector, by supporting the work towards jobs, growth and the sector’s competitiveness
Welcome to the EU Women in Maritime Project run by ECSA-ETF, and to our very first Blog.
This project will promote women in maritime within the EU. The initial phase will identify good practices and measures to enhance the recruitment and retention of women in the industry. It will also include measures to deal with gender policies in the workplace. The research will be used to inform and support the subsequent awareness-raising campaign that will be developed to fulfil the project’s mission.
We would love to hear your views on these topics over the coming months and would like to welcome you to our project network.
As a starting point it would be great if you could let us know:
As a woman, what initially attracted you to the maritime industry? Please answer in comments .
