Women in the Industry Series Continues


The Active Interest Media Marine Group will continue its AIM Women in the Industry series with a Facebook Live event on Thurs., Sept. 9 at 9 a.m. The 30-minute event will focus on a single, female oriented topic, and will be hosted by speaker Alicia Rodriguez and Michele Goldsmith, publisher of Soundings Trade Only. (Soundings Trade Only is published by Active Interest Media.)

“With the success of the June virtual breakfast, it was clear that there is a desire for community amongst women in the industry, and that Alicia Rodriguez’s unique abilities and perspectives resonated with the attendees,” said Goldsmith in a statement.

June’s event, which can be watched here, was streamed in watch parties and by more than 380 attendees in 10 countries.

“Based on the survey data from the event, we are introducing a series of Women in the Industry events in a variety of formats, which will feature Alicia Rodriguez. For the September event, we chose a Zoom/Facebook LIVE platform because of the ease of connection and its chat box functions. At the prior event the chat box was very active, and we want the attendee engagement to continue,” added Goldsmith.

The AIM Women in the Industry Facebook LIVE event is sponsored by Sea-Tow, Mercury, MarineMax and Volvo Penta.
