Dedicated to Recognizing and Honoring the Contributions of Women Divers
The Women Divers Hall of Fame™ (WDHOF) is an international non-profit professional honor society. WDHOF Members are the pioneers, leaders, innovators and world record holders throughout the international diving community. These areas of diving and undersea endeavors include: the Arts, Science, Medicine, Exploration & Technology, Marine Archeology, Business, Media, Training & Education, Safety, Commercial & Military Diving, Free Diving, and Underwater Sports. There are currently two hundred seventeen members in the Women Divers Hall of Fame, hailing from thirty U.S. states and Territories and eighteen countries worldwide. WDHOF Members are selected on an annual basis.
WDHOF’s two-part mission is to:
• Recognize women divers who have made outstanding contributions to the exploration, understanding, safety and enjoyment of our underwater world and
• Support the underwater world and its associated careers by promoting opportunities for women and men in diving through scholarships, internships and mentorship opportunities and a worldwide network of industry contacts.
