FHG Marine Engineering
With FHG's co-founder a previous supporter of the UN's International Gender Champions, the importance of signing a pledge like She of the Sea was clear. We hope to see a yachting industry that fosters greater inclusivity, gender balance, and equal opportunity. Visual and verbal representation is so important in helping change the tide on learned biases and norms. She of the Sea’s initiative is a major driving force in this regard and we're committed to helping reach these goals. It's an honour to sign the pledge. Count us onboard!
