January 12, 2017
January 12, 2017   6:30 p.m.-8 p.m.
Latitude 41° Restaurant & Tavern  

Women have been an integral part of the U.S. Coast Guard since they first became lighthouse keepers in the 1830s. Since then, the proud history of females in the service include the Women's Reserve (SPARS), a critical component during World War II, through the first active-duty female personnel in 1973 and the first female cadet, admitted to the Coast Guard Academy in 1976.
Join us for a panel discussion on the future of women in the Coast Guard and the challenges and opportunities of leading the 21st-century Coast Guard.
Led by Erica Mohr, USCG Commander, Retired, the panel includes CDR Jessica Rozzi-Ochs, Naval Engineer and former USCG Barque Eagle Executive Officer; CDR Amy Florentino, Officer Candidate School Chief (and former USCG Eagle Sailor and ship Commanding Officer); CDR Breanna Knutson, Chief Pilot and Operations Officer at Air Station Detroit; and Captain Jennifer Williams, USCG Office Chief, Commercial Vessel Compliance.
