WISTA UK is the longest existing national WISTA countries, as it was in London that WISTA was founded in 1974.
London and the UK are very proud to be the birthplace of our international organisation that over the years has grown worldwide. The international WISTA is an umbrella organisation with a presence in 35 countries and with over 2,100 members worldwide.
Here in the UK they have in excess of 140 members, contributing much valuable input; at the same time, we encourage and invite young people starting in the industry to join, as they are the ones who will most appreciate support and mentoring and can benefit enormously from WISTA UK contacts and experience.
WISTA UK aims to be a major player in attracting more women to the industry and in supporting women in shipping and maritime sectors.
