The Canadian Women in Ocean Industries Leadership (CWOIL) 2022 Conference will take place May 9-11, 2023
at the Delta Hotel in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Conference will bring together 200+ ocean professionals in the ocean sector, including representation from equity seeking groups: 2SLGBTQ+ community; Indigenous communities; persons with disabilities; and racialized people. The CWOIL initiative aims to attract, develop and retain a robust, diverse and inclusive talent pipeline that includes women from all origins to enable and accelerate Canadian innovation, research and technology development, and market and export leadership, in ocean industries. From November 14 – 16, 2022, the CWOIL Conference will see further discussions that will formulate an action plan for ensuring more women become leaders in ocean industries. Additionally, there will be a celebration of current female leaders in ocean industries.
