Columbia Takes the Lead in Empowerment of Women With Their “CSM TogetHER” Campaign

Columbia Takes the Lead in Empowerment of Women With Their “CSM TogetHER” Campaign

In support of IMO’s 2019 efforts, ‘Empowering Women in the Maritime Community’, and as a company that employs hundreds of women globally, Columbia launched the CSM TogetHER initiative on International Women’s Day.

To kick-start this initiative, Columbia Cyprus has invited the President of WISTA International, Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, to give a staff talk on ‘Women in Shipping’ on 31st May 2019.  Anna Vourgos, President of WISTA Cyprus will also be in attendance.  Columbia’s Board of Directors has committed to a long-term action plan which includes the creation of a Women’s Mentorship Programme, Unconscious Bias training and the sponsorship of a number of WISTA memberships for female staff.  Core teams have been set up throughout the Cyprus, Germany and Singapore offices for a joint approach to supporting female talent.

As first steps, CSM Cyprus has welcomed 2 Cypriot female cadets from the Cyprus Maritime Academy, whilst CSM St. Petersburg office has welcomed their first female deck cadet.

Diversity is key to providing a sustainable future for the shipping industry internationally - Columbia is committed to its diversity policy.

Mark O’Neil, President of Columbia Shipmanagement, said: “At Columbia we recognise the specific skill sets of each person and want to empower those persons to apply their skills in a diverse environment of equal opportunity.”
