Launch of 40 by 30 pledge on International Womens Day

March 1, 2022

Gender equality is UN sustainability goal number 5 and a goal well within the grasp of many maritime organisations.

It highlights the important challenges facing the maritime industry in Norway and invites leaders to take action by signing  the «WISTA Norway 40 by 30 pledge».

«40 by 30»

The current percentage of women in leading positions in the maritime industry in Norway is a mere 15%, compared to other industries such as health (47%) and finance (29%).

The 40 by 30 pledge is a straightforward symbol of commitment whereby companies agree to promote diversity in the maritime industry by striving towards increasing the share of women in leading positions in their organisation to 40% within 2030.

Even though the 40 by 30 campaign does not officially launch until March 8th, we already have a long list with sigatories including Norges Rederiforbund, Norled, Sjøfartsdirektoratet, Grieg Star, Norwegian Hull Club, Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Skipsrederi.

On March 8th WISTA is hosting informal after work get togethers in locations all over Norway to mark the launch and gather friends and partners in the Maritime industry together.
