“She is the minister for the Year of Engineering which was promoting engineering careers, and she said that this overlapped with the work of the Women in Maritime Taskforce as well as addressing skills shortages.
The minister met Martin Cox and Lauren Mudliar of Southampton-based AMI marine, which make bridge navigation equipment including voyage data recorders – the ship’s equivalent of an aeroplane’s black box.
The AMI pair explained that their company had a 50-50 split of men and women in their 12 management positions.
Mr Cox said: “Being the father of two daughters, I want girl power to be the way of the world.”

More than 100 delegates took part in a floating conference aboard Blue Funnel’s Ocean Scene as it crossed the Solent before watching eight new fast boats being put through their paces off Cowes.”
