It was a great honor for me to be part of this amazing initiative. Finally, the shift in dynamics towards gender equality is becoming even more evident. 

The very fact that for the first time, an event focused on female empowerment was held during such an internationally renowned event such as London International Shipping Week, aimed at bringing to the forefront women's challenges, needs and provide them with guidance on how to follow through their dreams and aspirations within this industry, is a great step forward. If even one more female is inspired to fearlessly pursue her dreams, following the summit, it can be deemed a success!
