Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA New Zealand

WISTA New Zealand focuses on providing support and networking opportunities for women working in the maritime, transportation and related trading industries in New Zealand, and raising the profile of the industry as a positive career choice for women.   Our members, sponsors and supporters are drawn from a wide range of organisations including ports, shipping line operators, freight forwarders, logistics companies, importers and exporters, seafarers, maritime lawyers, maritime and logistics academics, marine insurers and recruiters into the maritime industry.

The New Zealand branch was incorporated in 2014 following positive consultation with women in the industry, and began in Auckland. A chapter in Tauranga was launched in late 2019, and a third chapter in Wellington in May 2021.  WISTA exists for the members. Members and prospective members are encouraged to provide feedback on what they want from the organisation.

We hope you will join us at one of our networking events or at one of our more structured events which range from presentations from interesting and inspiring speakers, case studies from our membership and tours to places of interest to our members.  WISTA NZ is an inclusive organisation.  Many of our events are open to both members and non-members and men are welcome to attend.

If you have any suggestions or queries, or if you are interested in sponsoring WISTA NZ or one of its events, please contact any of the Committee.
