Agenda Session

DOCKSIDE CHAT: Women in Commercial Fishing Spotlight

Nov 09 2023

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM PST

NF Wheelhouse Booth #150

Join Julie Kuchepatov, Founder of Seafood and Gender Equality (SAGE) and Megan Waldrep, Founder of Partners of Commercial Fishermen, as they spotlight women in the commercial fishing industry and their achievements that have shifted and leveled the playing field. During this interactive session, we will understand where women play leading roles in fisheries, why their contributions are seldom recognized, and brainstorm ways we can uplift and amplify women’s achievements in the sector.


Seafood and Gender Equality's mission is that gender and sustainability go hand-in-hand. SAGE uplifts, amplifies, and integrates diverse voices in the global seafood sector to build a more resilient industry.


SAGE envisions an inclusive seafood industry that embraces gender equality and empowers women, leading to an abundant supply of environmentally and socially responsible seafood for future generations.
