The Surfrider Foundation is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization for all people who protect and enjoy the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. Our success and impact depends on learning from our community, standing in solidarity with our allies and working towards a more just future, both for our organization and the environmental movement as a whole.

We, therefore, strongly encourage our employees and chapter activists to include their gender pronouns in their Surfrider Foundation email signatures. In doing this, all individuals can freely express themselves and openly identify however they choose and prefer.

We believe creating mechanisms for people to make their gender pronouns known to colleagues, clients, and partners will help eliminate workplace bias and promote a culture of mutual respect and value.
