The free session is open to anyone who would like to attend, not just women.

“We encourage people to share the event information with industry professionals who would benefit from the program and, if desired, to watch together,” DeSanctis added.

The event is sponsored by Sea Tow, Mercury Marine, MarineMax and Volvo Penta, each of which “has created a workplace environment that empowers women,” DeSanctis said.
