KVH Joins Signatories of Women in Maritime Pledge

Maritime UK has created a campaign to help maritime industries adjust their recruiting strategies in order to hire skilled women. The Women in Maritime initiative invites companies to sign a pledge to support women in maritime industries, especially in senior roles. KVH signed the pledge this month.

KVH, a provider of maritime connectivity and content solutions, is pledging its support for Women in Maritime, an initiative of Maritime UK. The Women in Maritime campaign aims to promote fairness, equality and inclusion within the maritime sector, bringing together leaders from across the industry to identify practical steps to increase the number of women in maritime, and crucially within senior roles across shipping, ports, marine and business services industries.

The Northern launch of the Women in Maritime campaign took place in Liverpool this month, with support by several members of KVH’s Liverpool staff, many of whom have actively mentored and encouraged younger women in their workplaces and in the industry for many years. Maritime businesses have initially been asked to sign a Women in Maritime pledge, and KVH officially signed earlier this month. —KVH
