"We are committed to building practices and cultures that actively facilitate, cultivate and celebrate diversity and inclusion, at all levels, throughout our organisation, and our industry"

The Diversity & Inclusion Pledge

The Pledge is a commitment by She of the Sea and signatory organisations to work together to build a diverse and inclusive Yachting industry. Organisations that sign the pledge represent our industry's early adopters and leaders within this global movement.

The Pledge reflects global aspiration to see diversity and inclusion at all levels realised. A diverse workforce is widely recognised to significantly outperform any other. Areas of particular relevance to our industry include economic performance, improved work cultures, innovation and return on invested capital.


From all corners of yachting, these individuals and organisations are utilising their unique platforms to create an increasingly diverse industry.

By combining efforts from both the shore side and crew sectors, we will see wide spread change that benefits us all.

She of the Sea welcomes interest in the Yachting Diversity & Inclusion Pledge from all organisations and vessels of any type and size.
