Our pledge:

At Plover Rovers, we do not tolerate racism, sexism or discrimination of any kind.

We value the diversity of our volunteers and we’re committed to fostering a culture where everyone feels they belong and has equal access to opportunities.

When we see instances of racism, sexism or other forms of discrimination we all need to speak up and take action. 

We all have a responsibility to build a world of equal opportunities where no one is judged by the colour of their skin, their gender, their sexuality, their look, their health, their disability or their religious beliefs. 

There is much to be done, and Plover Rovers is committed to enable people of all backgrounds to feel safe, thrive and succeed and to help to open up and diversify marine science and conservation.
