Coffee Chats with Ocean Allies
Who this is for: Diverse and under-represented workers in Canada’s ocean technology industry
What we’ll do: It’s an informal chat in a safe space for peer-to-peer conversations about challenges in the industry.
This is an opportunity specifically for non-traditional and under-represented workers in Canada’s ocean technology industry to meet, discuss and network. These sessions will act as a peer mentorship group for those new to the ocean sector and/or existing individuals in the ocean economy looking for a group of peers to connect with. The goal for these informal chats are to help people in the ocean technology community feel supported and included. They are intended to create a safe space for peer-to-peer conversations about challenges in the industry.
Is there something you’d like to talk about? A situation you don’t know how to handle? Submit your anonymous question for the Ocean Allies Coffee Chat
Grab your favourite warm drink (coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc.) and join our simulated cafe experience to connect with your ocean tech peers!
The format of these events are meant to be casual, we will follow a general agenda:
- Introduction and welcome

- Return to main room for final discussion and summary
