Ocean Blue Happy Hours are a series of virtual oceans-themed happy hours with moderated discussions on topics of interest to the community, and opportunities for networking in breakout sessions.
Happy hours are open to participants at all career stages and backgrounds. We welcome any and all ocean lovers and practitioners. You must RSVP to participate.

How to get involved with Ocean Blue Happy Hours:
Email us to moderate an upcoming happy hour, or suggest a topic and be a guest co-host! As a co-host, the topics and speakers will be led by you, and we will support you by helping coordinate speakers, come up with an agenda, and manage the Happy Hour.
We will continue to prioritize the voices of early career ocean scientists and highlight the work of underrepresented researchers and policy-makers in the ocean sciences. Email us with ideas (Emily: / Rennie: )
