Diversity of gender, cultural background and age is important in any organisation. Simon Møkster Shipping will not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex or national origin. Shipping has traditionally been a male-dominated industry. In line with UN SDG 5 on gender equality, Simon Møkster Shipping wishes to promote gender equality and empower women both on board and ashore. Women are represented in most positions on board including Master, deck officers, engine officers, electricians, stewards, ABs, apprentices, and cadets.
In 2023, Simon Møkster Shipping signed WISTA’s “40 by 30” pledge. By doing so, we have committed to create specific goals to increase diversity anchored by top management, ensure that the diversity goals are measures, regularly followed up and published to the Company’s website and strive towards 40 % women in leading positions by 2030.
