Winter 2022 Virtual Professional Development Series 

Impacts of Inclusion: A Discussion of U.S. Military Policies and Changes Over TimeWho serves in the military? Whose stories are typically told? The former USS Intrepid was in service for 31 years, from 1943-1974. During this period, Navy policies that impacted the diversity on board the ship often mirrored cultural shifts within the United States. Join us for a virtual professional development series highlighting social justice through seldom told stories, accomplishments and policies impacting race, gender, and sexual orientation. Registration is permitted for individual sessions (2 CTLE credits per session). To attend all three sessions, please register for each one individually.


Double Victory: Black Americans in World War II
Tuesday, January 11, 2022, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm EST
Session fee: $5.00

In World War II, many Black Americans sought double victory, both at home and at war.  Looking at primary sources from the Museum’s collection and personal accounts from Black sailors who lived and fought on Intrepid, we will explore themes of segregation, discrimination and brave activism in creating historical change for the larger BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) community. 


We Can Do It: Women in the Military
Tuesday, February 15, 2022, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm EST
Session fee: $5.00

Women have a deep history of involvement in the United States military, starting as early as the Revolutionary War. Join us as we explore these important stories, and learn how the struggle for equality in society impacted these historically male-dominated fields.


Speaking Up: Policies of Inclusion for LGBTQ+ Service Members
Tuesday, March 15, 2022, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm EST
Session fee: $5.00

The history of exclusion of LGBTQ+ service members in the armed forces spans decades, including purges prior to World War II through the impacts of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in the 1990s until its repeal in the 2010s. To culminate this series, participants will learn about military policy during Intrepid’s time of service and compare the experience of Intrepid sailors to the voices of LGBTQ+ veterans who served before, under and after Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
