Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA Colombia

 Formed in 1974, the International Women’s Shipping and Trade Association (WISTA International) is a global organization that connects executive women who are actively involved in decision-making processes around the world. WISTA International serves as a connector for its network of more than 3,000 professional women from all sectors of the maritime industry.

More than 40 countries support a National WISTA Association (NWA), each of which is a member and is guided by WISTA International. NWA provides opportunities for networking, business and skills in the country, corporate visibility and also facilitates relationships within the industry.

WISTA Colombia seeks to project the work, tenacity and trajectory of the association in favor of women related to international trade and maritime transport. We also treat all its members with dignity and honesty. Our WISTA women will work together to improve the Association..

 

A note from Yasmin Andreina Maldonado Escobar, President of WISTA Colombia:

WISTA Colombia is already a fact and the opportunity that WISTA International offers to our country is a reality. The experiences of other countries help us to contribute to the development of the maritime and port sectors, to the projection of our port cities, thus contributing to the consolidation of Colombia as a maritime country.

Women who are already part of that essential component of the economy and make it possible to link many other things that are prepared to face the commercial and technological challenges. Women leaders, sharing their projects of lives, expectations and experiences, enterprising, empowered and visionary.

Colombia; A country with coasts in the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific, but also has navigable rivers and lakes. A geographical space of infinite possibilities in our growth Wista is projected to reach women from different regions of our country, creating training networks at different levels of education, promoting national and international exchanges, job offers, internship opportunities, agreements with others non-profit organizations with strategic allies to private companies, academia and state entities
