    On November 1-3, 2012, the Maritime Administration and the State University of New York Maritime College will host the sixth annual Women on the Water (WOW) Conference in Bronx, New York.

    This annual conference will bring together cadets from the Federal and State Merchant Marine Academies and Colleges with professional mariners who are leaders in different sectors of the maritime industry. The event will be an excellent opportunity for cadets to learn about the exciting careers that are open to them directly from successful women as well as to hear about current issues affecting the maritime industry. This opportunity is also ideal for cadets and professionals alike to meet and network with others in the maritime industry.

    WOW Conference Goals:

    Promote diversity in the maritime industry
    Provide exposure to the history and the current climate women face today working in the maritime industry
    Provide opportunities for cadets to interact and network with cadets from other academies and current female leaders in the maritime industry
    Provide exposure to maritime organizations for women
    Provide exposure to the career opportunities available in the maritime industry
    Provide an introduction/exposure to MARAD and its female leadership
    Provide an update on current issues impacting the maritime industry and its workforce, especially those that impact the lives of women
