Sharing the experience

Seawork’s Women in Marine Industry event went virtual for the very first time at SeaworkConnect.

Cat Savage – Technical Assurance Director BMT, Katy Ware - Director of UK Maritime Services MCA & Permanent Representative of the UK to the IMO and Lucy Masters - Recruitment & College Liaison Viking Chiltern, Chiltern Maritime, shared their experiences with the virtual audience.

Starting out in the industry, dedication to the job, coping strategies, the importance of mentors and giving back were just some of the touch points for Cat.

How to get more young people to see the opportunities in the industry, the changes in qualifications and how to achieve them, and the welcome rise in numbers of female captains and chief engineers were covered by Lucy.

Katy shed light on some of the changes that the COVID pandemic has wrought on the MCA ; the challenges of repatriating over 30,000 crew as the cruise and other shipping sectors closed down and then the upside of the ensuing arm’s length management enabling solutions to be achieved at pace.

If you missed today’s live session, the second of three days of Seawork Connect, or you would like to repeat view, the Women in Marine Industry session will be available at SeaworkConnect “On Demand” for the next fourteen days.

Seawork’s Women in Marine Industry event will return in person at Seawork 2022
