In episode 121 you meet Linda Ryan, Director Administrative Division, International Maritime Organisation, IMO, who is the first of four episodes recorded with people “inside the IMO”, explaining the important work that is being done in this UN Body.
Linda speaks about the “Functional review” that is going on within IMO, that is a “change” project aiming to make the organisation more effective and relevant to the maritime industry. “Young IMO” is something that I never knew existed but makes me very happy to hear about.
We discuss who is deciding the theme for the year within IMO, and I get the opportunity to express my gratitude for the theme this year “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community” but also my concern for what will happen once the year is over?
What do you think? Is the IMO doing what you thought they were doing or are there some more questions that you wonder about?
I love feedback, please give me some, I am @lenagothberg in most channels.
Thank you for listening!
