The YPSN hosted their second "Women in Shipping Lunch" on 18th April at Liberty Exchange, Exchange Square, with guest speaker Lola Chetti, a change consultant and executive coach. The lunch, which was kindly sponsored by Brenda Chark & Co, saw 45 women attend to hear Mrs. Chetti. The group discussed hot topics such as gender bias, political savvy in the workplace and the importance of cultural intelligence, which is especially relevant for YPSN’s international members. Over a three course lunch members volunteered their own experiences and discussed the importance of having role models and mentors within their industry and their own organisations, as well as the way forward for women executives. The discussion was lively, thought provoking and constructive, and YPSN plans to hold similar events in the future. Stay tuned!
