On Tuesday, January 15th, 2019 at 10:00 AM during the start of the Maritime Class, Educate The Block conducted an interview with one of ETB’s Rising Stars in the Maritime Industry. Ms. Latisha Conover is one of the first African American Female Seafarers who is leading an accomplished career in the short time she has been working for the CircleLine.
Just to give you a small insight on how important this is Ms. Conover is part of 2% of the maritime industry represented by the Female Sex. This means that out of 1.25 Million Seafarers she is a part of only 25,000 Females in the industry and of those 25,000 only a quarter of these women are African American (6,.250 Approx). It was a great opportunity for our current and future prospective students to see that our Educate The Block Alumni are doing great things!
