“​There is ample evidence that investing in women is the most effective way to lift communities, companies, and even countries.”

WIMAfrica is a non-profit organisation designed to answer the call of gender equality, women empowerment as well as to establish a cooperation of entrepreneurship development of African women in the maritime sector.

Details

This year’s theme is titled; “EMPOWERING WOMEN FOR EFFECTIVE PARTICIPATION IN THE MARITIME SECTOR” and has been carefully selected in recognition of International Maritime Organisation (IMO)’s 2019 Gender programme on which they noted on their own Women in Maritime programme that, “There is ample evidence that investing in women is the most effective way to lift communities, companies, and even countries. Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better (see study, The Bottom Line: Corporate Performance and Women’s Representation on Boards). Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all.”

.

Within the framework of maritime development, and through its Women in Maritime programme, under the slogan: “Training-Visibility-Recognition”, IMO has taken a strategic approach towards enhancing the contribution of women as key maritime stakeholders and encourages its member states, of which Nigeria is one, to continue to do so.

.

This conference is therefore being organized in recognition of the work being done in this space by the IMO and similar international and national organizations. At this conference, there will be speakers from the shipping industry, maritime professionals, maritime regulators and financial institutions.

The Women in Maritime Africa (Nigeria) is a registered non-governmental organization in Nigeria and a part of the Women in Maritime (Africa), the Africa Regional body. Every year, we hold our annual conference to equip women for greater participation in the maritime sector, give them an opportunity to network with women already in the sector and also improve their understanding of the workings of the maritime industry.This year’s theme is titled; “EMPOWERING WOMEN FOR EFFECTIVE PARTICIPATION IN THE MARITIME SECTOR” and will be taking place on the 15th of October 2019 at Four Points by Sheraton, Oniru, Lagos Nigeria.

This theme has been carefully selected in recognition of International Maritime Organisation (IMO)’s 2019 Gender programme which recognises that investing in women lifts up nations and that gender equality means progress for all.Therefore women participation in the maritime sector is for collective progress and facilitating human resource utilisation in  the martime sector to embrace the increased talent pool that women bring to the table from hard technical skills to soft managerial and people skills
