In honor of International Women’s Day, Norwegian Cruise Line launched a month-long effort encouraging team members to 'Step Up, Speak Up, Stand Up and Never, Ever Give Up.'

Throughout March, NCL will be hosting speed-mentoring sessions, conversations with women leaders and encouraging team members to share their empowerment stories and show their appreciation of team members around the globe.

In addition, employees will have a front-row seat to a conversation with Danielle Monaro and Medha Gandhi of 'Elvis Duran and The Morning Show,' a popular syndicated weekday morning radio program and NCL partner. (Duran is the godfather of Norwegian Bliss.)

'The past 12 months have undoubtedly been some of the most challenging in our lives,' NCL President and CEO Harry Sommer said. 'Given our year-long suspension of sailing and all that implies, we are happy to take this time to recognize and celebrate the women across our organization who are helping see us through this unprecedented time, and who will inevitably help lead us into a future characterized by innovation and success.

'Today, and every day, we want to empower all of our team members to challenge the status quo and rise to the occasion all challenges pose.'

As part of its International Women's Day effort, NCL leaders are sharing personal messages of empowerment and inspiring team members to do the same.
