In our recent monthly newsletter, our editor Diane M. Byrne shared her early experiences of sexism in the yachting industry. Furthermore, she shared how MegayachtNews.com has become a Supporting Organization of She of the Sea, a two-year-old initiative to promote diversity and inclusion across yachting. Clearly, both struck nerves, as more than 2,000 people have read it as of this writing. Because She of the Sea has gained global support from both inside and outside of yachting, we’re pleased to feature this interview with Jenny Matthews, its founder.

Matthews and her business partner, Natasha Ambrose, are each yachties who noticed a decided lack of women on deck. They created She of the Sea to ensure professionals and owners benefit from a high-performing, competency-focused industry, regardless of gender.

In this Megayacht News Radio interview, you’ll hear Matthews explain:

  • what convinced her to shine a spotlight on the need for diversity
  • how She of the Sea has evolved rapidly since its inception
  • how She of the Sea holds signatories of its Diversity Pledge accountable, demonstrating change within their organizations
  • what the coming months have in store, including a mentorship program.
