Welcome to the Women in the Industry events page. After the Women in the Industry Virtual Breakfast on June 3, 2021, we reviewed the attendee survey data, which provided a guide for what the women of the marine industry want to see in the future. Based on the data, there will be a series of Facebook Live, virtual and in-person, female-oriented events. The series will feature speaker Alicia M. Rodriguez, who led our first virtual breakfast. On this page, you will find information about each event as they are announced, and post event you will find resources and recordings. Thank you to everyone of every gender who is joining us for these events.  


Join us Thursday, September 9th from 9-9:30am EDT for the AIM Women in the Industry Facebook Live. This 30-minute event will be hosted by Alicia Rodriguez & Michele Goldsmith and will focus on a single, female-oriented topic. As with the June event, a live chat box function will enhance engagement at the event. This is a free event, register to chat live with us.
