The International Maritime Organization (IMO) recently designated May 18thth as the first ever International Day for Women in Maritime. “The observance will celebrate women in the industry and is intended to promote the recruitment, retention and sustained employment of women in the maritime sector, raise the profile of women in maritime, strengthen IMO's commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 (gender equality) and support work to address the current gender imbalance in maritime.”

This event will include a panel discussion featuring:

  • Captain Alexandra Hagerty – Ship Captain, Executive Leader, Master on Hospital Ship Africa Mercy 
  • Meredith Neizer, Chief Logistics Officer at ARMADA
  • Tiina Ruhlandt, President & CEO at EIMC
  • Karen L. Griswold, EVP Ocean Marine, Property & Specialty at Chubb

Isabelle Therrien, Senior Vice President – Canada at Falvey, and International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) Cargo Committee Chair, will serve as moderator at the event.

“International Day for Women In Maritime" will be hosted at the Yale Club with a networking reception that will include buffet luncheon and refreshments, including beer & wine. The panel discussion will begin at 1pm. A virtual option will be available to make this event accessible to all interested attendees. A link will be sent to all remote attendees.
