As a board member of the Turkish Chamber of Marine Engineers, Mrs Gizem Cevik of our Omikron, helped organize Yakamoz, the 3rd Global Symposium on Women & Sea.
During the Yakamoz, all women who work in the Turkish maritime sector gather to share their knowledge and success stories, generating a great networking opportunity as well as attracting the new generation of ladies into the maritime sector.
The symposium was held on the 8th of March 2019 in Istanbul so as to coincide with the celebration of Women’s Day and gathered more than 750 women and men who work in the Turkish and global maritime sector.
Mrs Cevik had the opportunity to meet with some outstanding ladies who lead the sector such as Cpt. Radhika Menon, who is awarded by IMO due to her bravery and Mrs. Despina Theodosiou, the president of WISTA.
We congratulate Mrs Cevik and all the organisers who made this great event a reality.
