Day 45 of 365 Introducing Joan McLeod Hi, I’m Joan McLeod. I first stepped across a gangway as a crew member on a patrol vessel in 1979. I was 17, and loved it. I got my ticket as a bridge watch keeper in 1986, working on offshore search and rescue ships and aids to navigation tenders. My first love was work on boat, flight deck and resupply crews where I got explore all three of Canada’s coast lines at close quarters. I also spent two years on the incredible 1000 mile long Mackenzie River. Canada is a beautiful and challenging country! Building confidence to work in non-traditional roles and offshore can be difficult, but I remember, even after 15 years it got far worse when confronted by both good and bad attention because of being different and, well, powerful. I know challenges like that are still happening for many unique individuals and women who still are often “the first” or “an only” - and it can mean ugly treatment, pressure, stress and harassment. We know teasing is good. Challenges are good. But harassment and limiting opportunity or comfort is not. At the same time, I learned from and respected colleagues who’d come before me: a captain of one of my first ships started his career working operations with no motors in boats and no helicopters: they did it all rowing workboats ashore and building lead-acid batteries by hand at the beacon sites! Making workplace change and diversity less costly and harmful for teams, leaders and women is still a passion: I ran operations for a few years, and realized it doesn’t have to be hard. I eventually moved into consulting work as a Workplace Specialist doing research and training on what works to improve and sustain healthy complaint and conflict management systems: my company is called Conflict Navigator! It’s rewarding to support those who need to can speak truth to power, get heard and find that their organizations have ensured end-to-end support for the entire team. Only by offering to, solving and sustaining solutions will we make it easier to keep women on board. #womeninmaritime #womenatsea #womeninshipping #wista #ship #womeninspiringwomen #imo #worldmaritimeday2019 #empoweringwomeninmaritime #stemgi

Day 44 of 365 Introducing Ester Nangolo :-) My name is Ester Nangolo, a Senior Fisheries Biologist and Marine Environmental Educator from the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources in Swakopmund, Namibia. I am currently heading the Monkfish Research Program, and in between my work as a researcher I go out and educate learners on ocean literacy together with a few of my colleagues. My first picture was taken during World Oceans Day, where we invite learners from various schools to come and celebrate the day with us as they learn more about the ocean and how to care for it. My second picture was taken onboard our research vessel, the RV Mirabilis, just before we headed out for our annual Monkfish Biomass survey in 2018. #womeninmaritime #womenatsea #womeninshipping #wista #ship #womeninspiringwomen #imo #worldmaritimeday2019 #empoweringwomeninmaritime #stemgirls #fisheries #againstthetideke

Day 41 introduces us to a super capable & clever port engineer. I gained my degree in civil and environmental engineering at University of Technology, Sydney, graduating in 2000 as one of only 8 women in a course of 150 people. I worked as a graduate engineer for a small engineering firm specialising in port and marine engineering, which is where my love of the maritime industry began. Working in a small firm, I quickly learnt to be diverse, developing skills in planning, environmental assessment, engineering design and project management. I spent many years working on infrastructure projects for major shipping terminals and other port industrial clients across the eastern seaboard. In 2005, I started my own consultancy, continuing to work on port infrastructure, and spending time on many construction sites as superintendent, finding my place as a female engineer in a male dominated environment. After 12 years running a successful consultancy, I moved directly into the port industry, now working at Port Authority of NSW as the Senior Manager of Asset Management and Projects. My team looks after all of Port Authority’s land based assets and Aids to Navigation, including kilometres of wharves, the Overseas Passenger Terminal, White Bay Cruise Terminal, Foreshore Beach and Penrhyn Estuary and hundreds of Aids to Navigation, amongst other maritime structures. We are also responsible for delivery of Port Authority’s major projects, ranging from upgrades to new port industrial facilities. I thoroughly enjoy my position, being able to work with a team of talented people and having the chance to have some real input into the strategic direction of the business, through management and delivery of critical port infrastructure. I am also so fortunate to work with some amazing female role models at all levels of our organisation. They are truly inspiring. Like them, I hope to use my career to encourage other women into the maritime industry. #womeninmaritime #womenatsea #womeninshipping #wista #ship #womeninengineering #womeninspiringwomen #imo #worldmaritimeday2019 #empoweringwomeninmaritime #portoperations #iaphwf #stemgirls

Captain Ester Gusmão is from Timor-Leste. She is a strong and an inspirational figure in the Timorese maritime community. In her speech at the World Maritime Day Celebrations in Timor-Leste last year, she addressed the future seafarers of the country with the words: “Do not be afraid to face the challenges of seafaring, especially if you are a lady. Because if I can do it, you can do it too.” The 27-year-old Captain Ester is responsible for a tugboat with a crew of four and enjoys every single day on board. Her hard work and good leadership and communication skills make her invaluable to her colleagues and crew. #womeninmaritime #womenatsea #womeninshipping #wista #ship #womenempowerment #wom#womeninspiringwomen #imo #worldmaritimeday2019 #empoweringwomeninmaritime #captain #iaphwf #maritime_family #womeninspiringwomen #diversityandinclusion #timorleste #instashipping #humansatsea
