We Meet Our Mission
Women Offshore empowers the careers of
women seafarers from around the globe…
The Women Offshore Foundation, also known as Women Offshore, is an online organization and resource center supporting a diverse workforce on the water. As a 501(c)(3), non-profit private foundation, our mission is to shine a light on women in operations, provide resources to foster long-term careers, and share the latest efforts on gender diversity and inclusion in the offshore and maritime industries.
As you explore our site, check out the mentoring program for women who work on the water, called the MentorSHIP. This is a virtual, peer mentoring program that connects women around the world who work at sea. Joining is easy, apply here.
We also have an annual event in Houston each year called UNITE, where women from around the world gather to support one another. Through panel discussions, workshops, and networking, individual needs are met, the community widens, and talent thrives. Find out more about UNITE here.
