The engineering, maritime and technology sectors each have their own poor reputation on gender diversity, and this week's guest Eleni Polychronopoulou, President and CEO of METIS, has roles spanning all three sectors.
In addition to her role at METIS, Eleni is President of HEMEXPO, Vice-President of Sea Europe, Board Member at Helmepa and an active member of WISTA and the Propeller Club.
Speaking to Gary Howard, Editor of Seatrade Maritime News Europe, Eleni discusses the cultural shift in the maritime industry that is producing more female leaders and the steps employers can take to make maritime careers more attractive to women.
Eleni covers her career, from taking her father on board ships as a child to her multifaceted current roles. The conversation weaves together AI and ChatGPT with cybersecurity and the importance of proper ship operations.
Eleni also talks about the product offering at METIS and gives a brief preview of her weather routing presentation she will be making at CMA Shipping 2023 in March.
