We were thrilled to see our founder Heidi Heseltine honoured at the Seatrade Maritime Awards as the recipient of their 2023 Diversity & Inclusion Award.
Fittingly, Heidi was able to receive her award in person at the DSG’s own annual DEI in Maritime Conference, which took place on 15th November in London, in the company of so many of our members and industry friends. It’s wonderful to see Heidi’s contribution to the cause of maritime DEI, onshore and at sea, recognised in this way.
Heidi Heseltine, Founder, DSG:
“I’m honoured to be the recipient of the 2023 Diversity & Inclusion Award from Seatrade Maritime. I love working in the maritime sector and I feel so strongly that we should support every person that makes up the diverse talent we already have in our sector, as well as all those that we need to attract in the future. We still have a long way to go, and I am always impatient to see us move faster, but I’m also excited by the progress we have made, particularly in recent years, and with the momentum that is building, and rapidly extending across the seafaring community as well as those ashore.
It also means a lot to me to receive the award at the Diversity Study Group Ltd’s annual DEI in Maritime conference, in the company of so many inspiring DEI leaders who are leading this change, through their personal commitment, the support of their organisations, and as part of the maritime DEI community that we are building together. Thank you very much Seatrade Maritime!”
