Take a look around yachting, especially at yachting advertising, and a stark reality is apparent. The industry portrays men as the owners, the business professionals, and especially the captains and deck crew. Jenny Matthews, a deck crewmember, wondered why after eight years in the business she had never once worked with a fellow female deckie. She created She of the Sea to not only challenge the status quo, but also to change it. MegayachtNews.com has just signed on as a Supporting Organization of the initiative.
She of the Sea has gained global support from within yachting as well as from non-endemic sectors. The mission: a high-performing, competency-focused yachting industry, regardless of gender.
You can learn more about She of the Sea and the pride that our editor, Diane M. Byrne, has in how gender bias in yachting is changing in this month’s edition of the MegayachtNews.com newsletter.
