Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA Brazil

The founding of WISTA Brazil occurred over the course of four years, when Ms. Fabiana Martins, the past President, first learned that her friend, Katharina Stanzel of INTERTANKO, had won the WISTA Personality of the Year Award.

When she did some research, she learned that there was no WISTA in Brazil.  Then she began to run into WISTA members at numerous industry events and saw the power of the “WISTA Sister” network.

While it seemed like a daunting task, to create an organization in Brazil, Fabiana began to lay the foundation. “It reminded me of an Arabic tale: ‘Who plant dates, do not reaps dates.’ This is because the date palms took 80 to 100 years to produce the first fruits. It is said that there was an old man planting dates in the desert when a young man approached him asking, ‘But why do you waste time planting it this will not reap?’ He turned his head and calmly said, ‘If everyone thought like you, nobody would reap dates. Our actions today reflect in the future if it is not time to harvest it can be time to seed.’”

WISTA Brazil was established in 2016 and currently has 100 members.
