Pearls of Power 2012: Women Helping Women

Please join us for Cal Maritime's First Annual POP@CMA: Pearls of Power Conference for Women. The two-day event, which will take place February 3-4, 2012, is designed to create a platform of support for our female cadets. The event is open to all women cadets as well as Cal Maritime alumnae who are interested in attending one or all of the conference activities.

Sponsored by Cal Maritime's Unity Council, the Pearls of Power Conference will help attendees realize the skills and confidence needed to "pop" in any personal or professional environment. The conference is free to our women students, faculty, staff and alumnae. 

Books written by keynote speakers Captain Deborah Dempsey and Sara Laschever, as well as Cal Maritime Marine Transportation Professor Captain Tuuli Messer-Bookman, will be available for purchase in the Cal Maritime Bookstore, as well as at the conference.  The authors will all be signing their books at the conference. 

For questions, contact Vineeta Dhillon, Chair of the Unity Council, at (707) 654-1283 or
