Active Interest Media’s Marine Group announced it is holding a Women in the Industry Virtual Breakfast, a female-focused event for marine professionals.

The virtual breakfast is scheduled for June 3 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. (ET) and will be moderated by Soundings Trade Only staff. (Soundings Trade Only is part of the AIM Marine Group.) The guest speaker is writer Alicia M. Rodriguez.

“Within the marine industry, the landscape of women in a variety of roles is changing and expanding. With that in mind, AIM has created this online, female-focused event with a strong, memorable speaker who will engage the attendees,” Marine Group president Gary DeSanctis said in a statement.

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.
