Women leaders vital, Kaul says

The National,Monday June 27th, 2016

DEMONSTRATING leadership to strengthen roles and responsibilities is something women in maritime believe in to become better leaders, the president of the Papua New Guinea Women in Maritime Association says.
Emma Kaul said the involvement of women in  association programmes was basically to reach out  to encourage women seafarers to continue building their career path.
“Only two per cent of Papua New Guinea seafarers are women,” Kaul said.
“Our continuous encouragement would help build the women in the maritime provinces to demonstrate leadership to play key roles in thier provinces and village.
“We have a strong believe that developing women is the integrated part to our aspiration to become leaders in all aspects of life.”
Forty six women from government agencies and the private sector were part of a three-day conference in Port Moresby.
“It is very important to develop and advance women in the sector,” Kaul said.
PNG Women in Business leader Janet Sape earlier this month raised a similar tone highlighting the importance of building women leaders in all aspects of life.
