Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA Sweden

WISTA Sweden was formed in 1987 by Swedish women attending the international WISTA Conference in Le Havre and Hamburg. The international network of WISTA was and is our inspiration. We have hosted the WISTA International Conference & AGM three times: 1984, 2000 & 2011.

Activities
WISTA Sweden holds two national gatherings per year: the spring conference and AGM, usually in May, and a theme meeting in the autumn. Our meetings include visits to relevant companies in various parts of Sweden, often in combination with workshops and seminars. The autumn meeting usually focuses on development, both personal and of our association.

Throughout the year we also have regional meetings that may include anything from meeting in a pub, attending shipping events, listening to interesting speakers or visits to our members’ work places, all with the ambition to develop the network locally.

When we gather, we always learn more about our trade – from each other and those we invite or visit.

More about WISTA Sweden’s activities and history can be found in the 25-year anniversary magazine.

If you want to get in contact with us, please send an email to wistasweden@gmail.com
