Diversity & Equality Award 2020

Seatrade Maritime Diversity & Equality Award recognises an individual or organisation that has demonstrated a particular commitment to achieving equality and diversity in its business environment. 

Open to any individual or organisation, this Award celebrates those that have truly championed diversity and equality into the company's vision. Judges will be looking for a supporting evidence of the commitment to a diversity culture.

Previously 'Integration of Women in the Maritime Sector Award', in 2019 we have awarded H.E. Eng. Hessa Al Malek, Marine Transport – Executive Director, Federal Transport Authority Land & Maritime, for her inspirational leadership and achievements. Since the beginning of her career, Her Excellency has been focusing on strengthening the effectiveness of female contribution to the maritime sector through implementation of strategies and action plans. Much of Her Excellency's time is spent on capacity building; strengthening maritime resource development; governance structures; and highlighting the impact of women in the maritime sector at national and regional levels.
