WiGS (Women in Green Shipping)

Women in Green Shipping (WiGS) is the Society's initiative to support gender diversity and inclusion in the sector. Inspired by the IMO 2019 theme ‘Empowering Women in the Maritime Sector’ our aim is to highlight, showcase and appreciate women’s contribution to the gas-fuelled shipping sector and to also inspire the next generation of women coming into the industry.

We have featured the profile of over 50 women from various technical and business support roles across our global membership. Their backgrounds vary from mathematics to marketing and from chemistry to ex-Commander of the US Coast Guard. These profiles showcase and appreciate the great contribution the women are making to their organisations, SGMF and the industry as it makes the massive transition to cleaner gaseous fuels.
