‘All Aboard’ as Stena Line prepares to fly the rainbow flag all over Europe

For the second year running, Stena Line is partnering up with EuroPride, and from 1 to 16 June it will be flying the rainbow flag and promoting the message “All aboard!” all over Europe in celebration of diversity.

The partnership with EuroPride is one of Stena Line’s initiatives to increase focus on Equality and inclusion.

Says Ian Hampton, the company’s Chief People & Communications Officer: “At Stena Line we welcome everyone. Whether you want to work here, travel with us or be one of our business partners.

“We are proud to support EuroPride for another year and the values of equality and diversity they represent; discrimination of any nature has no place in Stena Line.”

During EuroPride, Stena Line will fly the rainbow flag on a number of its ships and terminals all over Europe and will continue the theme on the company’s digital channels such as websites and social media.

Margareta Jensen Dickson, Head of People at Stena Line, adds: “We have more than 7,200 employees working together to create a great experience for all our customers and most importantly make them feel welcome.

“For us to do that, we need to make sure we have a sustainable working environment free from harassment, where everyone is given equal opportunities regardless of age, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity or disability.

“Therefore, Stena Line has decided to make diversity and anti-harassment training a mandatory part of the onboarding process for all new employees and managers.”
