Queen of England Honors Maritime Women!
Two senior women from the maritime industry have been recognized in the Queen's 2019 Birthday Honors list:
Sarah Kenny, chief executive of BMT the UK design, engineering, science and risk management consultancy has been appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) seafarer safety and health manager, Julie Carlton, who was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to maritime safety.
Kenny was awarded her honor based on her services to the maritime industry including, promoting diversity within the industry and Carlton received her honor for expelling great effort to get the ground-breaking Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) on seafarer living and working conditions into UK Law.
