Genoa, and in live streaming


In the shipping and port logistics sector, both environments with a high level of complexity and unpredictability, human factors are of central importance to the functioning not only of the systems but of the entire system beyond the emergency for a future of development and prosperity. More than in other sectors, people at work must be prepared, guaranteed in their health and safety, assisted in case of problems, and satisfied with their salary and personal growth prospects.

“Women in charge, goal reached?”

Panel by USCLAC – Unione Sindacale Capitani di lungo corso al Comando

The event, aimed at the entire shipping community but not only, starts from the story of cases of excellence involving women in top positions, such as ship captains and ship officers, to highlight the problems and also the opportunities that offers the sector, often misunderstood. The aim is to encourage both an expansion of employment and an improvement in the conditions of female workers in the maritime sector but also in pleasure craft, reducing the so-called “gender gap”.
