Event to ensure representation of women

EM2 20 News Int Gender qualityThe International Organization for Women in the Seafood Industry (WSI) and the North Atlantic Seafood Forum (NASF) have signed a memorandum of understanding with the objective of increasing the representation of women invited as speakers to the NASF conference to a level of 40% by 2025. The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals include one on gender equality and NASF sees this as a necessary foundation for developing the NASF conference further towards a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. The 40% target covers not only female participation as conference speakers, but also at the event’s seminars. When planning the event NASF will raise awareness among seafood leaders about gender equality and both organisations will widely promote the memorandum.
