I would like to welcome all of you to SSLA. We have a long history and commitment to women serving our nation and are dedicated to providing professional development through networking, education, and mentorship of women from all three maritime armed forces – the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. We are a national non-profit and non-political organization. If you aren’t already a member I urge you to join SSLA so that your voice can make a difference!
SSLA holds a Women’s Leadership Symposium each year, which will give you an opportunity to meet with hundreds of fellow service women – as this is the largest gathering of women in uniform nationwide! The symposium provides you an opportunity to focus in on your leadership development, while also highlighting the achievements of women leaders who are in our front lines across the globe. We encourage you to use this time to network with leaders and peers and to take the knowledge you gain at this forum back to your commands to share with your colleagues and friends.
