Ethnicity in Maritime Network

Our Ethnicity in Maritime Network (initially called BAME) was launched in July 2020 as part of the Diversity in Maritime programme.

Aims of the Network

  1. Help identify barriers to change and where the Diversity Working Groups should be focusing efforts.
  2. To bring together individuals from a culturally diverse background, along with allies, to shine a strong spotlight on the specific problem of racial inequality.
  3. Ensure that the network consider the whole of the UK “maritime” sector – comprising shipping, ports, services, engineering & science and leisure marine.
  4. To enable individuals and organisations to recruit, retain, empower and support individuals from a culturally diverse background.
  5. To act as disruptors to educate and enable individuals and organisations to acknowledge and challenge racial conscious and unconscious bias in the workplace.
  6. To share resources, good practice policies and toolkits that support individuals from a culturally diverse background across the UK.
