    IAPH Women’s Forum Breakfast Meeting

    The IAPH Women’s Forum was created in 2012 with the aim to discuss women’s issues in the port industry, to find ways of attracting women to join the industry and to retain and develop female talent. Since then, the Women’s Forum has steadily proceeded with measures to advance the status of women in the port industry such as IAPH Women’s Forum Scholarship. Coinciding with the first IMO International Day for Women in Maritime, this session features presentations by this year’s scholarship winners as well as a discussion on the Forum’s future roadmap and deliverables.
