ICS publishes ‘Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit for Shipping’ with first edition out now


The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has launched its first publication on diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the maritime industry to aid businesses and organisations with best practice and inspire change in company strategies and policies.

The ICS ‘Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit for Shipping’ has been developed to create awareness and inspire change in the strategies, policies and practices that will enable the maritime industry to meet the needs of the diverse seafarer community. It provides descriptions and definitions; provides ways to assess the current needs of diverse communities and identify gaps in services, policies and practice; and makes suggestions on how to fill these gaps.

This industry-leading publication provides resources and guidance to enable shipping companies to introduce and embrace policies and engage a positive approach to D&I issues, with the ultimate goal of boosting business efficiency and improved performance.

The Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit for Shipping is available to buy at an RRP of £140 in both print and e-book versions and can be ordered using the link order now.
