It’s time to #CrewUp with women, Celebrity CEO says

Celebrity Cruises released a new video, #CrewUpWithWomen, to spotlight its campaign to give more women opportunities in seafaring jobs.

This effort is championed by President & CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo as part of the brand’s commitment to gender equaility.

‘Teach your daughters to worry less about fitting into the glass slipper and more about shattering the glass ceiling,’ Lutoff-Perlo exhorts in the video.

From 3% to 22% women on the bridge

Celebrity has gone from 3% of women on the bridge in 2015 to 22% fleet-wide in 2019. And Celebrity Edge launched with 30% women crew — higher, Lutoff-Perlo claims, than any other ship in the fleet and in the industry.

‘And we are not finished,’ she adds.

#CrewUpWithWomen was produced with Pitch Her Productions, a female-led production company supporting women in the film industry.
