27th December 2018 - Press Release

Port of Dover pledges support and celebrates Women in Maritime

The Port of Dover is proud to announce that it has become one of over 80 signatories of the Maritime UK Women in Maritime Pledge.

The Pledge states: “We are committed to building an employment culture that actively supports and celebrates gender diversity, at all levels, throughout our organisation and our industry.” The port’s chairman Richard Everitt CBE signed the pledge on behalf of the port alongside other signatories Department for Transport maritime minister Nusrat Ghani MP and Women in Maritime chair, Sue Terpilowski OBE. Following the signing, Ms. Ghani was given a tour of operations to experience Europe’s busiest ferry port in action.                                                                  

As a signatory of the pledge, the port of Dover has made clear its intent to create positive change within the organisation, and collectively, across the UK maritime sector. The port is already actively involved in the work of the Women in Maritime Taskforce, represented by Director of Corporate Development and Operational Businesses, Barbara Buczek, herself a successful woman in the maritime sector and one of the winners of the 2018 Seatrade 20 under 40 awards which recognise the rising stars of the cruise industry. The Taskforce brings together leaders from across the maritime sector to identify practical steps to increase the number of women in maritime.

The Woman in Maritime Pledge is the forerunner to the Women in Maritime Charter, which is due to complete its pilot phase and be rolled out in 2019. As one of the Pledge signatories, the port of Dover will go on to become members of the Women in Maritime Charter in 2019 and take practical steps, setting measureable and ambitious goals towards meeting the aim of the Pledge.

Port of Dover Chairman, Richard Everitt said: “The Port of Dover is committed to encouraging and building gender diversity, at all levels, throughout the maritime industry. We are proud to support the Women in Maritime Pledge and Taskforce and in doing so, shaping positive change within the sector.”
