In alignment with the IMO Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2030, the purpose of this
policy and its annexes is to establish an institutional framework within WMU with a
view to creating an enabling work environment that embraces equality and diversity in
line with the UN System-wide Action Plan on Gender Equality and the Empowerment
of Women (UN-SWAP). This policy aims to promote gender equality in recruitment and
promotion and to enhance gender mainstreaming in the University’s teaching,
research, capacity building and knowledge dissemination activities.
