Six Female Officials Attended a Port Senior Management Programme in Nahalal, Israel

​Six female officials benefited from IMO fellowships and attended a Port Senior Management Programme held at the Galilee International Management Institute (GIMI) in Nahalal, Israel, (15 -28 November 2017).

The two-week course provided them with key information and updates on innovations in the port industry. This initiative comes from IMO's gender and capacity-building programme which supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, particularly goal 5 on gender equality.

One part of the programme focuses on providing gender-specific fellowships which in this case was provided to six female officials from Belize, Indonesia, Kenya, the Philippines, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.
