Fiji Women in Maritime Association (WIMA) is holding first strategic planning workshop on Saturday at Fiji Ports, Muaiwalu House in Walu Bay.

The workshop is on recognition, visibility and capacity building.

“This will be Fiji WIMA’s first-ever Strategic Planning Workshop, following the successful launch of the Pacific Regional Strategy for Women in Maritime (2020-2024) in September 2019,” WIMA President Jane Koi said.

“The workshop will help the women become leaders and contribute to the women in the maritime sector.”

According to Ms Koi the 30 women registered with WIMA includes stakeholders apart from those in the maritime sector.

“We hope that the workshop will assist women to be more visible in the maritime sector since it is a man dominated field,” she said.

“We have a consultant that will be conducting this workshop.

“There is a need for this workshop as the monitoring and reporting progress of the strategy is necessary.

“Whatever is implemented promotes and in line with the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5.”

The WIMA is anticipated to align itself to the Pacific WIMA’s regional strategy.

The Pacific WIMA’s regional strategy promotes and empowers women in the maritime community at all levels of capabilities.
