We are the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to the mentorship and development of women leaders in the sea services and beyond. We provide support to women in all branches of the military through our annual symposium, online membership services and through local chapter affiliation networks.

Annual Symposium

Every year, SSLA hosts the annual Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium (JWLS), which is the largest gathering of women in uniform. We welcome men and women to join us, meet amazing trailblazers, find a mentor, and share best practices on how to best lead and inspire others! The event will be held in Arlington, Virginia at Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport from June 25 – 28, 2024. For more information on JWLS, click here!
