Join us on today’s Women Offshore podcast as we sit down with Eva Veldkamp, a seasoned maritime professional who has navigated diverse roles across the industry. Eva’s career journey began aboard large container ships as a dual-licensed maritime officer, leading her to work with shipowners, managers, maritime schools, and various organizations within the maritime sector.

What sets Eva apart is her impactful humanitarian work, where she championed human rights at sea and spearheaded global initiatives to address psychological and social safety within maritime environments. Eva led a groundbreaking group focused on preventing bullying, unacceptable behavior, and sexual abuse in the maritime sector, sparking a transformative change in mindset.

During our conversation, Eva sheds light on the concept of psychological safety and its crucial role in fostering a respectful and supportive workplace culture at sea. She shares insights into her advocacy efforts, including her instrumental role in influencing updates to mandatory educational regulations at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Thanks to Eva’s dedication and collaborative approach, seafarers worldwide now receive enhanced training to address bullying and SASH (Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment).

Eva’s passion lies in connecting people and harnessing collective experiences to drive positive change in the maritime industry and beyond. Join us as Eva shares her inspiring journey and vision for a safer, more inclusive maritime community.
