As part of Fairplay’s ongoing focus on women executives in the shipping industry, the maritime magazine featured an interview with Angela Chao, Chair and CEO of Foremost Group.
In the article, Chao observes that growing up with her five sisters, it never occurred to her that there was any difference in expectations for males and females by her parents. Angela explains that her parents stressed that the path to success is through education and hard work, and she and her sisters live by this motto. She goes on to discuss various challenges and developments in the shipping industry and ends with her hope to have a positive impact on women in the maritime industry and the business world in general.
