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.
