 Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” LINE) held an online seminar focusing on women in maritime for around 60 female students in maritime college in conjunction with the International Day for Women in Maritime*¹ on May 18.
 The seminar, held on May 20, aimed to provide the opportunity to resolve anxiety and questions for women who are considering becoming seafarers. In addition to explaining life onboard for female seafarers and career paths that consider various milestones in life, the seminar also featured a Q&A session for the students hosted by six female seafarers at “K” LINE and based on their real-life experiences.
 Female seafarers at “K” LINE work in various fields and build up their careers as they adapt to work at sea and on land (including international posts), maternity leave, and other aspects of life. On the seas, we welcomed the first female “K” LINE ship captain this month who is taking command of an LNG carrier (LAGENDA SURIA).
 “K” LINE supports the philosophy of the International Day for Women in Maritime. We will continue our efforts to maintain and improve a safe and comfortable environment where onshore and offshore personnel with diverse values and different nationality, gender can make full use of their skills.
