The fireside chats, book club discussions, and hot topic meetings of the WSIG inspired a town hall series in 2021. This series draws from timely and important topics in the fleet, the academy, and our day-to-day lives to share knowledge, build community, and inspire action.
To suggest future topics for the town hall series, please contact SIGWomenUSNA@gmail.com.
