WOMEN LEADERSHIP IN MARINE TECHNOLOGY & SCIENCE EVENT TO BE HELD OCTOBER 13


Join MTS on October 13, 2 p.m. EDT for an interactive discussion in our Women Leadership in Marine Technology and Science webinar series - We Don't Need Saving, We Need Allies. Empowerment is a critical element of gender equality, however gender equality is not a "women's issue," nor can it be advanced solely through women's efforts. Men are important actors who can share the responsibility and participate actively in this agenda. Why? Because men continue to hold many of the influential decision-making positions. Working in partnership with women, men can be game-changers in transforming cultures and institutions that uphold harmful gender norms.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S LETTER - August Currents

As we return from summer break, and parents send their children back to school, we have to wonder – what hasn’t changed? Everything looks a little different this year, whether it’s remote work, masking in schools, social distancing in public places, or reaching for hand sanitizer every time we come home. Our world is a far different place in 2021 than it was in 2019 and getting back to “normal” may take more time than any of us had anticipated.

Many MTS conferences have been postponed, including the Dynamic Positioning Conference, Oceans in Action, and the Buoy Workshop. Some events have been adjusted to protect the health and safety of attendees, like the Offshore Technology Conference. And some have added both onsite protections and a virtual component, such as the OCEANS 2021 San Diego-Porto conference coming up this September.
