Dr. Kathryn Clay from the ‘Women in Tanks Networking Reception’ event: “This is a very exciting time to be in the terminal industry”

In the afternoon, the ‘Women in Tanks Networking Reception’ event was held, where Inspenet exclusively interviewed Dr. Kathryn Clay, who offered her impressions of this year’s Conference.

“We are very happy to have so many people, you can see it in the room, we have a large number of women participating,” explained Clay, who has already served five years as president of ILTA, an organization in which three of its fifteen members of the Board of Directors are women. “In our Board of Directors, each woman who has entered has strengthened us. Three women have opened up the dialogue, made it feel more open,” Clay added.

For dr. Clay, it is very important that ILTA continues to look for ways to continue supporting women in the industry and providing opportunities.

“We know the industry is changing, it’s traditionally quite rare to have women especially in leadership positions, but for ILTA members that is changing,” added Dr. Clay.

According to dr. Clay, ILTA is working on how to increase diversity in the industry, as well as how to nurture and grow the human talent that is already working in the sector.

“It’s going to have to start with some kind of support for education, and also to better communicate our industry, so that more people who don’t traditionally see themselves as candidates for the industry, see themselves as candidates and see that this is an interesting industry. . So we’ve got a lot of work to do, we’re up for the challenge, we think we can do a lot of good, and next year this room is going to be a lot bigger… the industry is changing and it’s time for us to keep up, it’s a time Very exciting to be in the terminal industry,” said Dr. Clay.
