Project Empowering Women in Hydrography
While the number of women in the workforce has risen in recent decades, there remains an imbalance between men and women in leadership positions, and women are still underrepresented in many STEM subjects. Currently women qualified in hydrography represent 25% of the demographics, yet less than 10% of national hydrographers are women. As for IHO bodies, only 13% are chaired by women.
To try and change this, the IHO has launched a new project to “Empower Women in Hydrography” with the goal of raising awareness about career opportunities in hydrography, and to increase the number of women in leadership positions.
