The final On the Horizon panel session will be held in Genova on 30th June 2023. These panel sessions, focusing on diversity and inclusion in sailing, have been organised and supported by GAC Pindar in collaboration with The Magenta Project, World Sailing Trust and The Ocean Race.
The inaugural session was held at the start of The Ocean Race in Alicante, with a second event held during the Cape Town stopover.
The third in the series was held at The Ocean Race Newport stopover, and the discussion focused on developing pathways for women not just as sailors, but in technical and support roles. Delve into what was discussed here.
“It’s great to see people’s mindsets changing as far as diversity goes but this change is far too slow,” challenged Jeremy Troughton, General Manager of GAC Pindar. “We, together with The Magenta Project, The Ocean Race and World Sailing Trust are united in keeping this topic front and centre for all of us.”
The final ‘On the Horizon’ panel discussion and networking event will be held at The Ocean Race in Genova, Italy on the 30th June 2023 at 0930 at the Sailors Terrace. Those attending the stopover and interested in joining the discussion should register to attend here.
