Women's International Shipping & Trading Association

Welcome To WISTA Uruguay

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 Uruguay was founded in 2008 by Mrs. Karen, Solveig and Kirsten Schandy, Dr. Gabriela Vidal and Ms. Nadia Nedelchev, and was the first NWA founded in Latin America.
