Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA The Netherlands

Formed in 1974, the Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA International) is a global organisation connecting female executives and decision-makers around the world. WISTA International serves as a connector for its network of more than 3.800 female professionals from all sectors of the maritime industry.

54 countries support a National WISTA Association (NWA), each of which in turn is a member of and is guided by WISTA International. NWAs provide in-country and regional networking, business and skill-building opportunities, corporate visibility, and also facilitate relationships within the industry.

On a global scale, WISTA members have access to an incredibly diverse network of executives in the shipping and trading field on whom they can call for referrals, connections, advice or business collaborations.

WISTA the Netherlands
WISTA the Netherlands was established in 2000 and currently has 190 members whom are working at management level in the Dutch maritime industry.  WISTA wants to inspire, energize, motivate, and educate women in the maritime industry, to increase their competence and empower them in their careers. WISTA also wants to be a diverse network where all maritime disciplines and age categories are represented.

WISTA’s ambitions consist of attracting more women to the maritime industry, supporting women in management positions, and making the maritime industry an attractive career option for young driven people.

To realize these ambitions WISTA organizes workshops, company visits, presentations of professional speakers, an annual general meeting and international conference, networking events and other social gatherings. WISTA also facilitates discussions with other industries and young professionals.
