Important info for all WISTA Norway members!

Based on member feedback and Social Media engagement, we’ve concluded that LinkedIn is the preferred and most effective communication platform for WISTA Norway. We will focus our attention on this one channel (along with email) and wind down our Instagram and Facebook channels. 

We have also set up a LinkedIn private group for our members where we can share member info, invite to events and open for members to share and discuss. Our members will find information about how to join this group in the latest WISTA Norway email titled: Whats happening in Q4. We have an exciting line up of events this month so great if you can join the LinkedIn private group as soon as possible!

So in summary, LinkedIn is where its at!

It was so great to connect in person at the WISTA summer parties in Bergen, Haugesund and Oslo this week! 🤩 In each location we combined knowledge sharing sessions with networking. Learning more about topical subjects and learning more about each other. 

The opportunity to exchange thoughts, ideas and advice in such a forum is something our members really appreciate and we’re planning many more real life meet-ups … stay tuned!

Thanks to all the brilliant presenters (all tagged in the LinkedIn version of this post) and to Norwegian Hull Club, Haugesund Rederi Forening, Knutsen Shipping and SANDS Advokatfirma for kindly hosting us 🙏

Looking forward to attending in Haugesund ⚓️

WISTA’s voice was amongst those listened to by the Norwegian government these past days as the government develops a gender equality strategy for the maritime industry. 

Represented by our board members Stine Mundal and Emilie Christiansen (in the Oslo strategy meeting) and Henriette Bergesen (in the Bergen meeting), WISTA conveyed its input to this important strategy work. 

Our firm belief is that we need to accelerate change to the culture and image of the industry, for the benefit of both our existing female colleagues (with keen focus on those at sea) and for all the women we wish to attract to the industry. We urged the government to set specific goals, including supporting our “40 by 30” campaign through active government participation. 

We are honoured to have been invited and excited to follow the progress of this policy.

Inspiring and positive to hear the Mayor of Haugesund, Arne-Christian Mohn refer to WISTA Norways 40by30 pledge in his speech which opened this years Haugesund Conference, pictured here with board member Caroline M Whittle. Achieving gender diversity is key to securing the right competence in the maritime industry.
