Gender Diversity

Encouraging greater female representation in shipping

Diversity in all forms is important.

At BW LPG India, we value diversity in all its forms and are committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our collective sum of individual differences, knowledge and experience is not only a part of our culture, but also allows us to better understand and meet customer needs. It also allows us to create a workplace environment where employees can perform to their fullest potential, which ultimately drives better financial performance. We remain committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and diversity. Inclusion and diversity are core pillars of business growth and central to our company’s identity. 

Gender representation is a particular element of diversity that we support. 

The shipping industry has a disproportionate number of men, and it is important that we encourage more women to join the business. BW LPG India is commited to fostering a safe and equal workplace for women at sea and on shore, and to support a barrier-free working environment. In this regard, BW LPG India sets aside resources to sponsor the education for female cadets.  Curently, the sponsorship program is support nine female cadets who are pursuing a maritime program at the Indian Maritime University, a maritime university with headquarters in Chennai and campuses in Chennai, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai Port, Navi Mumbai, and Visakhapatnam
