There has been a lot of conversation in our industry surrounding assault and harassment recently and we recognize women around the world are being confronted with trauma from their own experiences. In this episode of the Women Offshore Podcast, Jais Curry, director of community outreach, and Erica D’Eramo, director of development, join together to share healing words of advice. Jais and Erica provide insights and tools on how to navigate feelings you may have already been dealing with, or feelings that may have come to surface due to recent media reports. Acknowledging your feelings is the first step, and asking for help, if you need it, is necessary.

As women in this industry we have to take care of ourselves and each other.  If you are experiencing emotional trauma we encourage you to reach out to someone for help; this could be anyone – a loved one, a counselor, a friend. If you are not sure who to ask for help, Safer Waves offers support and information to merchant seafarers who have experienced sexual violence or gender discrimination while working at sea.
