In November 2021 the Norwegian government launched an equality survey and strategy for the maritime sector. This is an important step toward increasing equality in our industry in which the percentage of women in leading positions is a mere 15%. WISTA Norway have since our inception in 1988 worked towards attracting women to the maritime industry, and retaining them, to improve diversity and accelerate reaching sustainability goals.
WISTA Norway launched our ‘40 by 30’ Pledge to allow you and your company to show that you actively commit to promoting diversity in the maritime industry, most importantly are striving towards increasing the share of women in leading positions in your company to 40% within 2030 as one of your diversity measures.
