Truly the Pearl of the Black Sea! Jillian Carson-Jackson, FNI, FRIN, Senior Vice-President, The Nautical Institute
In my work, I travel to many parts of the globe. It is an honour and a privilege when I can also meet with members of the Nautical Institute during my travels.
The World Maritime Day theme for the year is “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community”.
This provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and to highlight the important – yet under-utilized – contribution of women within the maritime sector.
