You are invited to spend a half-hour with us. Grab a coffee, lunch, or a beverage of choice and learn how a Naval Architect graduate from Memorial is pioneering sub-seabed imaging technology with her innovative company, PanGeo Subsea.
“ Did you know? Today, women comprise only two percent of the global marine and ocean industry. Research shows that gender diversity and a culture founded on inclusion and belonging are proven multipliers to corporate performance, profitability and economic growth. According to research from McKinsey, “Canada can add $150 billion in incremental GDP by 2026 by advancing women’s economic empowerment”.
OceansAdvance and its 46 local, regional, national and international partners aim to change that.
Coffee with CWOIL is just one of the many initiatives the Canadian Women in Ocean Industries Leadership (CWOIL) initiative will be implementing as we work towards the development of a program which will see an increase in the number of women actively working in the oceans sector around the globe. Whether it’s trades, technical, research or entrepreneurial-based, we need to attract and retain women to stay in this industry of highly skilled, well-paid professionals.
Over the coming months, we will feature an array of international females as they tell us who they are, where they started, where they are, and how they got here.
