U.S. Shoreside Ethnic Diversity Breakdown3
Shipboard Team Members by Nationality
1 While we present male and female, we acknowledge this is not fully encompassing of all gender identities.
1 Under-represented minority ("URM") is used to describe diverse populations, including Native American, Asian, Black, Hispanic/Latino and Native Hawaiian team members in the U.S. Except for Pride of America, we do not track ethnicity/race for our shipboard team members as the majority are URMs from a U.S. perspective.
2 Based on those who have self-identified.
We are increasingly focused on presenting a diverse slate of candidates to all hiring managers. We use various forms of outreach to target prospective diverse candidates including posting job openings on diversity organization websites and participating in diverse career fairs. Looking forward, we have partnered with local universities and continue to seek opportunities to enhance our diversity hiring.
The opportunity to grow and develop skills and experience, regardless of job role, division or geographic location, is critical to our success. In 2022, team members, both shoreside and shipboard, completed over 800,000 hours for training and development. Various programs are also available for team members to leverage, including mentorships, language courses and more.
We have long-term partnerships with the National Diversity Council, sponsoring the Florida Diversity Council and its South Florida local chapter. In 2022, we were the proud sponsors of the LGBTQ+ Summit held by the Florida Diversity Council. In 2021, Sixthman, our subsidiary company based in Atlanta, Georgia, specializing in developing and delivering music-oriented charters, joined the ATL Action for Racial Equity. This new initiative seeks to accelerate racial equity by leveraging the size and scale of the business community and the power of collective impact. Businesses who sign on to the initiative will focus on measurable actions across corporate policies, inclusive economic development, education and workforce development to help in addressing the region’s immobility and inequity challenges.
We recognize the value and importance of a diverse supplier base and are committed to facilitate, promote and encourage the growth of small businesses and businesses owned by diverse and/or economically disadvantaged populations.
In 2022, approximately 47% of our total U.S. supply chain spending was with small businesses or businesses with minority, veteran or economically disadvantaged qualifications.*
