PADI Women’s Dive Day 2021 Placed Inclusivity Center Stage


PADI Women’s Dive Day on July 17, 2021 placed inclusivity and inclusion center stage alongside environmentalism.

Across the world, organizations and individuals teamed up to work together and celebrate creating a balance between the ocean and humanity. Events included:

  • Divetech Grand Cayman hosted a charity fundraiser aimed at diving 1 second for every person diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. A fantastic total of 639 hours underwater.
  • Raja Ampat-based Meridian Adventure Dive Resort worked with Papua Design to create a community day. Bringing divers and snorkelers to local dive sites and helping them learn about all the wonders of the coral triangle.

Commenting on the events across the globe, PADI Worldwide Chief Brand and Membership Officer Kristin Valette Wirth stated:

“Since the inception of PADI Women’s Dive Day, events around the globe have addressed ties between diversity, inclusion and environmentalism – with this year’s event scaled accordingly to the state of the COVID-19 pandemic. Around the world, our diving community showed their continued commitment to turn their passion into purpose for the ocean.”
