About IWSF
” An organization for women Seafarers by women Seafarers”

The International Women Seafarers Foundation is a Not-for_profit Trust registered under Mumbai Public Trust Act (1950). The organization was founded in 2017 by three pioneering women seafarers of India, Capt Radhika Menon, Ch. Engineer Suneeti Bala, and Ms. Sharvani Mishra. As the name suggests, IWSF works for the benefit of the women seafaring community around the world to bring about gender equality in the maritime profession. We currently have over 300 women seafarer members from India, Bangladesh, Turkey, and Oman and are expanding with each passing day.

In order to achieve this prime goal, IWSF partners with administrators, maritime unions, ship owners, ship managers, and several maritime representative bodies to provide training, education, guidance, mentoring policy, and execution support at various levels. Further, IWSF also conducts surveys and researches to understand the effectiveness of current policies in providing gender-neutral environment on-board.

A woman is faced with numerous social challenges in their pursuit of a sailing career. Young girls, more often than not, when faced with unusual circumstances, are unable to take the right steps at right time, leading to complications for peers and companies employing them. IWSF members strive every day to support all ladies who have chosen this challenging profession.
