If you’ve been around our site, you probably recognize this statistic: women make up less than 4% of the offshore workforce.

Women Offshore is here to change that.

As a team of contributors, with a combined total of 65 years working on vessels around the world, Women Offshore.org was launched as an online resource center for a diverse workforce on the water.

We caught some people by surprise – including industry leaders. We can’t wait to show you more.

By the way, we are proud to mention that our team consists entirely of millennials.

We don’t want women to be a mere statistic, but here’s one more…

As we reported previously, the American Petroleum Institute disclosed that nearly 1.3 million job opportunities are projected in the oil & gas and petroleum industry through 2030, and that female employment is expected to account for just 185,000 of these jobs.

What a terrible projection for women.

We need your help. You have ideas and we want to help you make them happen.

A Call to Action

We all know that the maritime and offshore industries have problems to solve in safety, operations, and the environment. Our industries are known, especially, for disasters and negative impacts on the environment, which include greenhouse gas emissions, acoustic noise, and oil pollution.

We only have one planet and, let’s face it, whether you believe in climate change or not, as gifted beings with complex thinking skills, why shouldn’t we do what we can to reduce our impact?

We need to utilize the whole human population to diversify our workforce to solve our complex problems. At Women Offshore, we aim to empower and connect the maritime and offshore workforces towards the ultimate goal of solving these complexities together.

Consider Working Offshore

Are you considering a career offshore, but don’t know if it’s for you? We encourage you to give it a try.

Apply. Come out for a year or more. Get the experience and take that to a university to get a Master’s Degree. You will be on track to run our businesses and solve our problems.

Are you thinking about quitting the sea-life to pursue another route? We understand; we have been there, too. We value your experience and want to show you some alternative career routes in the maritime and offshore industries. Your experience matters and is needed.

Are the upper echelons of business management not for you? We understand that, too. Let us know where you want your career to go and we will find the resources to get you there.

Most importantly, if you’ve left a career at sea, we really want to shine a light on you and bring you back as mentors. Here’s why:

An Evolutionary Imperative

Most species on this planet die after their reproductive life cycle has ended. Female human beings, on the other hand, live well past menopause just like another animal kingdom species: orcas. Yep, it’s true.  As obscure as a statistic as it may be in this article, it does come back around full circle, to a directly related and important application for our industries.

Marine mammal scientist, Dr. Naomi Rose, believes that female orcas live past menopause because they serve a purpose: female orcas pass their wealth of knowledge on to the younger ones. The older generation ensures that their pod survives.

Just like orca pods teaching their young, Women Offshore can be a thriving community of mentors and mentees for career growth. If you had a career at sea once, we want to feature you! We are hungry for your seafaring experiences and lessons learned. We need you to help us solve those complex problems we are concerned about.

We are not “Gossip Girl.”

While we might look like another women’s group to some, we need the male perspective here, too. This is not a place for man-bashing or gossiping; Women Offshore is for game-changers.

There are so many men who we have worked alongside, who champion women in operations every day – as highlighted by a few of our Team Members at Women Offshore.

We want to include men, as well as thank, celebrate, and learn more from them.

Empower & Connect

Our Team’s values are to “Empower & Connect.” We take these seriously and are connecting you with resources to propel your career.

We want you here with us, even if you are just entertaining the idea of a career at sea. We need you back if you left, or if you’re already on a ship somewhere on this amazing planet. We hope to connect with all of you.

Help us change the world for the better by empowering and connecting each other.
