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!

JWLS 2023 and the Career & Transtioning Seminar will be held in person June 29 – July 1 at the San Diego Convention Center! For more information on JWLS, click here.
