The volunteers of IWSF try to reach out to companies and encourage them to embrace gender-neutrality in seafaring. In the three years of our existance, we have seen the ‘women seafarer acceptability index’ of shipping companies worldwide has improved, although much can still be done. Companies like Scorpio, Disney Cruise, Synergy Maritime and several others have now opened their recruitments for women seafarers. Many are in the pipeline and are seriously contemplating hiring women seafarers. We regularly reach out to ship managers to drive this mind-set change. As a result, companies approach us with their job vacancies and we post it to our members to apply. So far, IWSF has placed over 60 women seafarers on-board and will continue to push our boundaries.
Not just on-board, we also help ladies in taking on shore opportunities. Our network of volunteers continuously assist each other in improving placement of women seafarers world-wide.
