I am from southwest Finland, born and raised by the sea. I started at maritime university in 2011 and sailed as an bridge officer for a bit over three years. I am a chief officer on a general cargo carrier but I am for unpaid vacancy leave from my permanent job for another project. I am currently part of the sea trial bridge team for a state-of-the-art new build and will spend a few months with this project until I will join my “own” ship. As in my experience, gender equality is there and no actions needed from IMO side. Just the attitude that some few may still have.
