Fleetwood Nautical Campus of Blackpool and the Fylde College (United Kingdom) has been supporting female cadets for many years through the Female Forum. Being inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals and IMO World Maritime Day 2019 theme 'Empowering Women in the Maritime Industry' as well as success of the Female Forum, the Campus has decided to review support provided to women in the maritime industry. In order to achieve this, we would like to review the format of the Forum and perhaps even to amend its mission to reflect the changing needs of the industry.

By means of this survey Fleetwood Nautical Campus would like to collect more information from women in maritime professions in regard to challenges faced in their careers and what could have assisted them in addressing those challenges successfully. We would be very grateful for your contribution to this short survey, which will help us to identify how we can better support women in maritime industry throughout their career progression.

Many thanks,

Women in Maritime Forum
Project Team
