Maritime women to benefit from new leadership course

Maritime subjects are set to feature on a new Leadership in the Public Sector course being developed by the training arm of the UN system – the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). This was decided at a UNITAR meeting at IMO Headquarters, London (28 February) where a task force, including IMO, was set up to develop the course.

The training will be launched in Marrakech, Morocco (23 June) with a view to delivering the training to women officials attending the next regional meeting of the network for women of maritime authorities in Latin America later this year.

This initiative is part of IMO’s ongoing efforts to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal on achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls (SDG5).

Representatives from IMO’s Technical Cooperation Division also discussed the potential for future collaboration with UNITAR in its role in providing high-quality learning solutions to individuals, organizations and institutions, particularly in the developing world.
