- This event has passed.
We’re super excited to pre-announce the kickoff for the 5th class of our female mentoring program #MaritimeMeetUp (separate event for Bergen TBA)!
Formal invitation to follow, but save the date & let us know if you need a mentor or would like to join as a mentor. The program is organized pro-bono as a “dugnad” initiative to accelerate more women into executive positions, and is free of charge to attend.
The launch breakfast meeting is generously hosted by law firm SANDS in Cort Adelersgate 33 on 22 August. We are also delighted to announce that their Senior Associate Camilla Barr will be Birgit Liodden’s co-coordinator of the program!
- Our best career advise for shipping people of any gender or age is ensuring to have good mentor(-s)!
- We’ve planned a superb kickoff this time!
Who’s who, introduction to the program and inspiring talks for program participants only from 8-9:30am, before we’re opening the venue for non-participants and executives from across our industry. 9:30-11am will feature mingling and a seminar filled with insights, inspiration and best-practice on how shipping companies can succeed with diversity as a tool for financial performance and increased competitiveness.
