Heading for change - gender equality at sea
Show Notes Chapter Markers

 At the moment, the traditionally male-dominated maritime industry is moving into a new, more diverse era. Like other industries, the maritime industry has only benefited from this transition towards a more heterogeneous workforce, where all participants have equal opportunities and everyone’s contribution is weighed in and utilized.
To get an insider’s view on things, we invited Malin Andersson to join us. Malin has worked at sea as a captain, an occupation which still continues to be male-dominated. We feel Malin Andersson is a good role model, since she chooses not to see herself as a female captain, but simply as a captain who cares for her crew and who stands up for fairness and takes action when someone is treated wrongly. Tune in when we broadcast one of our favourite conversation from 2020 a second time!
