Annual Women on the Water Conference

Each year, the Maine Maritime Academy (MMA) and U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Adminstration (MARAD) partner to host the Annual Women on the Water Conference, a multi-day event held at one of the seven maritime academies that showcases the successes of women in the maritime industry and encourages female cadets to prepare themselves for the ever-evolving industry. Attendees meet with industry leaders, maritime professionals, fellow students, and academy representatives in a series of workshops, mock interviews, one-on-one mentoring sessions, and speeches from the maritime industry's top female professionals.

This event highlights the vital role and contributions women play in our nation's maritime workforce, especially its future leaders. As Maritime Administrator Mark H. Buzby noted during the 10th annual conference in Castine, Maine, "By providing our female cadets with the opportunity to learn from other female maritime industry leaders, we hope to inspire them to greater levels of achievement in their careers."
