Who are we?
WIMOs stands for Women in Maritime Operations and was founded in 2017 to bring together women working in operations roles within the maritime industry. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. While WIMOs was started in the New Orleans area, we already have presences in over a dozen US states with official chapters Southern Louisiana, Western Kentucky, and Houston, with budding chapters the Ohio River Valley and the Pacific Northwest. WIMOs is a networking organization that also gives our women opportunities for additional training and volunteer work. WIMOs women have a wide variety of experience inland and offshore and in many industries including oil and gas, coal, grain, EH&S, vessel logistics/services, barge logistics/services, and much more.
