A skilled, diverse, and inclusive workforce is crucial for the maritime sector to prosper.  Port of Aberdeen is proud to sponsor the Diversity in Maritime Programme.

Diversity in Maritime aims to promote a fair, equal, and inclusive UK maritime industry that embraces diversity and creates a supportive and open atmosphere for all to be able to achieve their potential. The programme works closely with the Maritime Skills Commission to ensure the UK maritime industry has a continuous pipeline of highly skilled, diverse people and to support the Department for Transport’s Maritime 2050 People Route Map.
