Shaping an international network for women in the seafood industry: A round table discussion

09/10/2015 - 09/10/2015

Time: 14:00-16:30 Venue: ARVI, Puerto Pesquero, Vigo-Pontevedra

The GLOBEFISH report: The role of women in the seafood industry, published in May 2015, illustrated the lack of consideration for women’s role and work in the industry, their invisibility to industry players and policy makers, and their surprising absence in the board rooms and executive positions of major seafood companies. FAO and partners will be collaborating with the seafood industry, member countries, gender and management experts, and other partners on the launch of an international network for women in the seafood industry in early 2016. This round table discussion is an opportunity to obtain information and ideas from industry experts, and to learn about the experiences of national and regional networks as work on an international network moves forward.
