Capacity Magazine: December/January 2019
The lack of statistics that exist around women in subsea is shocking. For this very feature my search took me to the very depths on the worldwide web, tapping up numerous resources via LinkedIn and email and I still came up with nothing.
Through my own grassroots style of investigating, I scrolled through the websites of the some of the biggest players in subsea to inspect their management pages in hopes of seeing a strong female presence.
Of the six companies I surveyed not one had more than 30% of its management team led by women. The highest of them had five of its leadership positions held by women, out of a possible 18 (27.78%). The lowest had just one. And two had no women on management teams at all. As the industry at large is facing a skills crisis, these are issues that need to be addressed.
