The diverse and influential presence of women in all aspects of maritime endeavour today is impressive. This presence has not always been the case – or was it? There is wide acknowledgement that immense social and economic benefit flows when we harness all the talent available to us. Is this happening in relation to the maritime industry? Be prepared to be astounded – we were!
