Diversity in Yachting: Katie Storr

Jun 10, 05:00 PM
Join Gabriela and Katie in this very strong and pointed conversation about what it is like to be a person of colour in Yachting. How Europe seems to be the furthest behind when it comes to accepting people of colour in the luxury sector, the challenges faced onboard that go above and beyond the already demanding duties that are required of Yacht Crew, right down to the simple things like uniform sizes and hair, that most take for granted! The fear that yachties of colour have in speaking out about racism and their experiences, believing that this will make them lose all prospects of a job for the future.

The discussion as well brings up the topic that is featured most often in this show, in regards to the industry showing a complete lack of understanding when it comes to their marketing. How as a result, they are not even TOUCHING a HUGE segment of the population that is rapidly becoming the next generation of clientele, or rather COULD, become the next generation, now and into the future, if they were actually the target of any marketing whatsoever. 

If you are wanting to know the REAL story, then watch the entire conversation. This is a no holds barred look at what the Yachting Industry needs to change for the future!
