We believe people are our most important resource and we have an ongoing commitment to maintain a safe, diverse and inclusive culture that supports and empowers our team members. As recognition of this commitment, we were named by Forbes to the 2021 list of America’s Best Large Employers, ranking among the top 75 companies in the overall Large Employer category and among the top 10 companies in the Travel & Leisure sector.
Our Company is committed to fostering an inclusive workforce, where diverse backgrounds are represented, engaged and empowered to generate and execute on innovative ideas. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is demonstrated by our Board of Directors, which is 37.5% female and 12.5% under-represented minorities, with two female directors serving in Board leadership positions. In addition, our global shoreside manager and above leadership team is 48% female and our U.S. shoreside manager and above leadership team is 49% ethnically diverse as of year-end 2021.
Strengthening Our Communities
Dedication to Family and Community is one of our core values and we are committed to strengthening our local communities, the communities we visit and the local ecosystems through which we cruise. We believe it is our responsibility and privilege to give back to the communities around the world where we live, work, visit and serve. In 2021, we reinforced our commitment by announcing a Paid Volunteer Day for all U.S. shoreside team members to support our community involvement efforts. In addition to our employee volunteer efforts, we strengthen communities through charitable giving and philanthropy initiatives, partnerships, community outreach and disaster relief.
The health, safety and well-being of our guests and crew is our highest priority, not only onboard our ships, but also at every destination we visit. We take great effort to maintain a healthy, safe and clean environment and have a stringent 24/7/365 public health and safety compliance culture. In this evolving global public health environment, we have taken swift action to meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic including the development of our robust, multi-layered and science-backed SailSAFETM Health and Safety Program developed in conjunction with our team of expert advisors.
