IMarEST Explores: Gender diversity in the marine industry

When: March 8 2021

Where: Virtual, United Kingdom


Join us this International Women’s Day for the first in our IMarEST Explores panel series.

It is well documented that greater gender equality increases economic growth and GDP. Improving gender diversity is one of the single fastest ways to speed development in any industry – creating a bigger talent pool, more skills and fresh ideas, not to mention a different point of view. But in practice, the path to achieving this vision is riddled with obstructions.

Our panel will explore the importance of equality and diversity through a personal, local, and global lens, and will examine challenges, triumphs, and ambitions for the future.

As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to our panel, and to join us afterwards for an optional post-event interactive networking session, where you can meet other attendees from around the world.
