WISTA USA Connecticut + New York/New Jersey Chapters co-hosted an event at SUNY Maritime College on 26th of September.
Fortuitously, the event was held the same day as IMO World Maritime Day 2019, with the theme “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community”.
Empower women they did. The evening kicked off with a Tour of the Campus and the Training Ship – TS Empire State.
Mary Reilly, gave a presentation on the history of WISTA as a founding member. Members from various fields – Legal/Claims/Owner/Operator – spoke about their experiences in the Industry.
About 20 female cadettes attended. It was the perfect opportunity for them to mix and mingle with women in the Maritime Industry.
