Full Time

Eclipse is an annual event that has been a tradition at the Coast Guard Academy for nearly 50 years. It was established by the Genesis Council in the 1970s, to foster an inclusive environment by stimulating dialogue and learning that promotes a culture of respect. Over the years, Eclipse has also become a time for collaboration, mentorship, and camaraderie . This three-day event is intended to equip leaders with the tools to equitably lead and support a diverse workforce. Eclipse is broken down into three main parts. First, individual break-out sessions modeled after an academic conference driven by the cadet Affinity Councils. These session embrace identity related topics encompassing race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and more. Second, Eclipse features between one and three keynote addresses. The keynote address are all hands events. Finally, Eclipse hosts an awards dinner where we recognize leaders throughout the Coast Guard and in surrounding community who have exemplified a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Commandant of the Coast Guard is a regular attendee of the awards dinner.
