The World Maritime University (WMU) and IMO have published a book to highlight the achievements of women in the maritime sector.

The book – Maritime Women: Global Leadership – is a compilation of scientific papers presented at the ‘Maritime Women: Global Leadership’ international conference hosted by WMU last year, in cooperation with IMO.

In addition to this collection of scientific papers, the IMO has created two videos that show how the IMO and the industry are working to change to a more inclusive environment
