For the first time in BC Ferries’ history, every crew position on board was staffed by a woman on the Island Discovery working the Powell River to Texada Island route.  In recognition of International Women’s Day, the crew included master, mate, deckhands, senior chief engineer and engine room assistant. BC Ferries is continuously working to ensure a safe and supportive work environment where gender equity is at the forefront. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Inspire Inclusion” and supporting employment equity and diversity in the workplace is paramount.
