The brain-child of Joey King, the maritime symposium and diversity job fair will bring students from high school, college and university together to share knowledge with and learn from each other and employers in the industry.

This event was supported by the office of Assemblymember Mike Gipson, the Long Beach City College’s Department of Workforce Development, the Port of Long Beach and Makersville (a community project of ETES Inc.) and the entire Makersville Services board.

There were 3 major parts to the project: A Maritime Symposium – shared experiences from diverse individuals in the Maritime Industry, a competition, and a diversity job fair.

Very successful, and we hop to again execute in 2023.
